What is Sustainable Packaging?
Sustainable packaging refers to the use of methods and techniques for the development of such packaging products/supplies that have the least environmental impact and ecological footprint.
Sustainable means that the packaging should remain safe and effective throughout its life cycle, after which its component materials should be fully recyclable. The sustainability mostly depends on the package design, choice of materials, processing, and life cycle.
Sustainable Packaging At The Forefront
Sustainable packaging is a crucial aspect in delivering sustainable products and services.
In designing sustainable packaging products, companies need to answer a few questions, including:
- Will it be able to attract consumers to the product;
- How much will it cost;
- Will it provide needed protection for the product?
Sustainable packaging might not always be economical, beautiful to look at, and durable. On the other hand, unsustainable packaging can cheap, convenient, and strong but it will always be resource-intensive and inefficient.
Why Is Sustainable Packaging Important?
Sustainable packaging may be more expensive than conventional packaging, but it is more beneficial. Some of the benefits are listed below
- Resource Conversion
Sustainable packaging uses recycled materials and low-impact production processes – conserving raw materials, which preserves natural resources for the next generation.
- Human Health and Safety
The implementation of sustainable packaging solutions promotes human health and safety because it uses agricultural waste instead of potentially toxic and hazardous chemicals.
It reduces work-related illnesses and injuries and enhances customer loyalty.
- Business Continuity
Conventional packaging demands greater use of natural resources while sustainable packaging uses less natural resources – thereby improving the ability of businesses to continue making packaging products without having to manage the reduction of natural resources.
- Materials Can Be Recycled
The usage of recycled materials for the manufacture of sustainable packaging supplies has the potential to reduce the company’s carbon footprint and resource consumption.
For food contact materials, there are special considerations especially for the use of recycled plastics and paper. Regulations are published by each country of origin.
- Employs Sustainable Business Practices
Sustainable packaging can be produced using best practices, clean technologies, and appropriate safety measures.
- Less storage costs
Sustainable packaging reduces packaging materials and waste. This practice leads to more efficient storage, so the space required to house your products can be minimized, thus lowering storage costs.
- Practicing Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
As the people of the world gain awareness and become more informed citizens – they look to support and purchase from businesses promoting environmental protection and sustainability.
This is why many companies have established CSR strategies.
Opting for sustainable packaging brings the benefit of adherence to CSR goals as well as gaining customer support.
