The Flexi-Hex system, with its patent pending design and distinctive honeycomb structure, is simply cardboard but innovatively designed to add strength and flexibility.

With the UK’s alcohol industry worth more than £40bn, and this demand has resulted in increases in bottles being sent by post across the UK and internationally.

Will and Sam Boex, founders of Flexi-Hex, said glass bottles in transit are particularly prone to damage and a considerable number are arriving at destination broken.

Will Boex said: “We conducted market research and found the drinks industry were seeking reliable plastic free packaging solutions. We developed the design, product tested it against current bottle packaging materials with some very positive results”

Flexi-Hex’s first bottle project was with Tinkture, a Cornish artisan gin company who were looking for a reliable eco solution to send their unusual glass bottles.

Its glass stopper is secured with a unique steel spring, allowing our bottles to be re-used for life.

However they were proving difficult to package securely for sending.

The Boexs said testing has shown positive results and Flexi-Hex feel confident the system will help prevent breakages, reduce the overall amount of packaging required and remove the need for single use plastic in bottle packaging.

Sam Boex said: “We wanted to use our design skill set to create a product which was entirely biodegradable, cost effective and more reliable than plastic alternatives”.
