The Need to Offer Sustainable Packaging & How to Do it Right

The Need to Offer Sustainable Packaging & How to Do it Right

The continuous degradation of the environment has prompted businesses to change the way they work. Eco-friendly drives, which were previously implemented by novel companies, are now becoming a standard practice to aid our ailing planet. It is a collective aim, but is every business doing its part?

The companies that sell products use packaging material to ensure the product’s look & safety. A myriad of products has been used for this over the years- ranging from paper to plastics. However, the immense number of products paired with the deteriorating state of the Earth prompts the need to switch to sustainable packaging.

What is Sustainable Packaging

To put it in simple terms, Sustainable Packaging refers to packing products specifically and using materials that lessen their environmental impact and ecological footprint.

Reducing packaging material paired with minimising waste are crucial components of this idea. For instance- Major companies like Apple & Samsung reduced the size of phone packaging to bring down the use of packaging material.

Need for Sustainable Packaging

Increased Packaging

Products require different types of packaging depending on their nature and target consumer.

Few companies rely on multiple layers of packaging to ensure product safety. Even if this doesn’t look unsustainable on paper, the need for more packaging material forces increased production and faster depletion of resources.

Increased Wastage

As packaging material increases, so does the waste. Multi-layered packaging methods produce large quantities of material waste. Even if there is a single layer of packaging, inefficient packaging products & practises could still contribute to the overall material waste.

Another aspect is the product waste because of low-grade packaging material. This type of packaging gets scuffed and torn, decreasing the product’s shelf appeal.

The shift towards sustainable packaging isn’t easy. Challenges like cost & convenience put a pause on the efforts to go sustainable by many companies. We offer a practical solution.
