Control Moisture with Micro-Pak® Dri Clay® Biodegradable Kraft Desiccants

Better for the Planet, These Earth Friendly All Natural, Plastic-Free & Biodegradable Desiccant Moisture Absorber Packets Out Perform Silica Gel & Calcium Chloride with Zero Microplastics


Silica gel desiccants are widely used in the packaging of consumer goods to prevent moisture damage as they travel along supply chains. For many years consumers didn’t give a second thought to how they are made or what happens after they are disposed of. Not anymore.  Fast forward to today and the desiccant packet you placed inside your package to protect the product has now become a spokesperson for your company and your brand.Micro-Pak Dri-Clay Kraft Pack inside sneaker box

Studies show that a growing segment of consumers are expecting sustainable products where ever possible, including desiccants - which is the very first thing a consumer often sees as they open their package. If your packet is not landfill friendly, it creates a negative emotion all the way to the trash can.

While they seem harmless in landfill, in reality industrial desiccants have a tremendous negative environmental impact.  If you employ Tyvek® silica gel or calcium chloride desiccants into your packaging to protect moisture-sensitive products against deterioration, mold, mildew, rust or corrosion, then you're unfortunately creating pollution, litter, microplastics and consumers know this.

Conventional industrial desiccant absorbers are NOT biodegradable and are difficult to recycle. Millions of these moisture absorber packets are disposed into the trash yearly and end up in landfill or oceans where they will remain indefinitely resulting in toxic microplastics - a serious environmental problem that affects the health of humans, wildlife and ecosystems.

A Sustainable, Safe & Effective Alternative to Silica Gel

You can easily strengthen your brand and protect valuable products longer while preserving the planet by converting to +Micro-Pak® Dri Clay® all natural, plastic-free biodegradable desiccants.

Micro-Pak® Dri Clay® is the most sustainable and effective desiccant on the market, defending your goods from moisture and extending shelf life. Dri Clay® sustainable moisture absorber packets are proven to reduce humidity faster and to lower levels than silica gel and calcium chloride. In addition, the production processes require zero chemical inputs or additives, as well as low energy and low water consumption resulting in a small carbon footprint. 

Micro-Pak® Dri Clay® desiccant packets are environmentally responsible, non-toxic, can be safely disposed in landfill where clay is returned to the earth in its natural state. Featuring water-based inks and adhesives, Dri Clay® does not release harmful or toxic chemicals into the soil nor does it contaminate water systems.

There is no risk of leakage—unlike other desiccants, the top-grade clay never changes size, shape, or texture, even when at full absorption capacity. The sachet is hard to tear, dust-free, has good breathability and does not contain binders or solvents.

Made with less packaging materials than other common desiccants, Micro-Pak® Dri Clay® is also available in five sizes to fit your packaging, allowing you to eliminate moisture economically.
