The Benefits of Green Packaging

July 3, 2015

As concerns over the future of the environment grow, manufacturers are under growing pressure to produce sustainable packaging that is as aesthetically appealing as it is green. One way to stand out from the competition is with 100% post-consumer recycled corrugated boxes and packaging that is attractive and good for the environment. You may think the benefits of going green are obvious, but there is more to using recycled paper packaging than reducing the use of packaging materials made from non-biodegradable materials.

Custom Green Packaging

It isn’t unusual to open a box of cereal, a bag of potato chips, or a bag of shredded cheese and find that it is not nearly full. Reducing waste is another way to use green packaging. Instead of making the packaging large enough to look impressive, it is custom made to fit the product that it will contain. The end result is the reduction of hundreds of tons of waste that ends up in the landfills each year.

Using recycled and recyclable materials for packaging materials will save even more on waste. Boxes and packaging made from recycled cardboard are a realistic choice for many products sold in a wide range of industries.

There are multiple benefits to taking these steps and always making the choice to use sustainable materials whenever possible. Reducing the amount of packaging also reduces the cost of transportation. The availability of printed boxes that brings the customers’ attention to your efforts to go green will increase your business and reduce the effort it takes to unpack the products they receive from you.
