Making the switch to eco-friendly packaging

Do you wonder how to shop the brands you like while being environmentally friendly? Here’s how. When you shop, whether it’s online shopping or window shopping, look for the type of packaging that the brand uses. This could help demonstrate whether the company takes care in how they produce their product, and how they package and transport it.

Paying attention to eco-friendly products is the new ‘in’ thing: consumers are pressuring brands to become more environmentally conscious and friendly. Following this trend will allow companies to keep selling their products to people who care, and it could also create a surge of new customers, which will then spread your brand’s name.

Using cardboard and paper for packaging is a good idea because it can look appealing. For example, eco-friendly cardboard tubes are boxes can be used to store anything: beauty products, candles, wine bottles, posters, and prints. Don’t worry – it can also look nice: you don’t have to package your products in boring brown cardboard; you can use foils, patterns, and logos. This packaging is eye-catching AND environmentally friendly, causing more people to take interest.

There are numerous environmental benefits to using cardboard and paper packaging. The first thing that comes to mind is that most cardboard can be recycled. This decreases the amount of plastic packaging being used, and the amount of microplastics polluting seas and oceans.

Cardboard is also biodegradable, and it breaks down much faster than plastic does, which is a massive benefit. Cardboard is one of the least impactful materials and is 100% recyclable and biodegradable.

At Packaging Works, we always encourage every brand we work with to change their packaging for the better. Get in touch to discuss your packaging requirements and to start the switch to eco-friendly packaging!
