Why use eco-friendly packaging?

Before we talk about how to create sustainable packaging, let's look at why you should.

According to data from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), packaging accounted for over 28% of the total municipal solid waste in 2018. Product manufacturers can play an important role in conserving resources and reducing landfill waste.

Consumers may not have previously considered the packaging of goods. However, today, most consumers are willing to spend more money to buy environmentally friendly products, and 40% of consumers will boycott companies that are not environmentally conscious.

Sustainable product packaging is not only good for the planet, but it's also necessary for your brand's image. Today's customers want to work with companies that share their values. Eco-friendly packaging is just one way to show them that you take your commitment to the planet seriously.
 

How do you create eco-friendly packaging? 

Sustainable packaging comes in many different forms. From food and beverages to electronics and household items, almost every type of product is packaged in eco-friendly packaging.

Whatever product you sell, here are a few sustainable packaging suggestions you can use to reduce the environmental impact of your business.
 

1. "Less is more."

"Less is more," a famous quote by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe; this concept also applies to packaging box design. When you use fewer elements in your packaging, you create less waste. Excessive packaging creates excess waste that ends up in landfills. Although the purpose of excessive packaging is to make the box more attractive, simple packaging design can also be a good way to showcase the advantages of the product.
 

2. Soy inks 

Ink is the most common packaging printing material. Traditional ink contains a lot of lead, mercury, and other heavy metals. The printing surface, during the drying process, will be toluene and other toxic substances volatilized into the air. There is a risk of cancer.
Soybean ink is an ink made from 100% renewable-resource soybeans that also does not emit toxic gases during the printing process. In addition to being environmentally friendly and non-toxic,the printing colours of soy ink will be brighter and brighter than traditional ink.
 

3. Eco materials

The most common environmentally friendly material on the market is probably paper. Many packaging papers are made from recycled waste paper and can also be recycled after use. There are many types of paper materials, such as white cardboard, kraft paper, grey board paper, corrugated paper, etc. When customising premium packaging boxes, you can choose materials according to the needs of the products and the budget of the brand. The paper material has as much protection as the plastic packing box.

Using eco-friendly packaging is one way to build a sustainable brand. It can not only reduce the negative impact of packaging on the environment but also attract the attention of more environmental users.
