As a brand, ensuring that sustainable packaging is a main priority is essential to remaining reputable and maintaining trust in 2020. With public demand pushing for a more socially and environmentally responsible world, as well as icons like David Attenborough publicly pleading with the world to become more sustainable, sustainability is an important topical matter to stay on top of – and adhere to as much as possible.

That’s why packaging companies can’t simply be just packaging companies anymore – they must become sustainable packaging companies, adhering to eco-friendly values and practises, in order to stay relevant. So, what do you need to consider when looking for an environmentally friendly packaging company?

Considerations of responsible packaging.

Looking for ways to make your packaging more sustainable? Some of the top considerations when striving for more eco-friendly packaging include:

  • Recyclable materials – eco-friendly packaging should use renewably sourced raw materials, which can be easily recycled in turn.
  • Simple production process – minimising the packaging’s production process will enable more sustainable packaging, as the supply chain and carbon footprint will be reduced.
  • Single material packaging – having single-material packaging solutions means that the deconstruction and recycling of the sustainable packaging doesn’t require additional services. It also reduces the labour to separate materials, saving both time and money.
  • Reusability – as well as being able to be recycled, ensuring your packaging is adaptable and can be used more than once is a great way to become more eco-friendly. This way, you can create a more circular economy around the packaging, extending both usability and the packaging’s lifecycle.

If you’re unsure how your business can make the move over to more eco-friendly packaging, certain bodies can help. The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) for instance is a body which ensures that any wood-based products (such as Lesters) are made from sustainably-sourced forests.
