Incorporating sustainability into your packaging process starts with taking a fresh look at current practices. While your manufacturing process that has been in place for years is working, it may not fall in line with current and future standards, including regulatory compliance, consumer demands, social movement, and economic challenges.
In a nutshell, sustainable packaging is packaging that has been manufactured from sustainable materials. Well-designed packaging remains effective throughout its life cycle, after which its materials are fully recyclable. The goal is to conserve natural resources and divert waste from the landfill, ultimately creating a closed loop of manufacturing and usage.
