Both public and private efforts encourage the effort, and as commitment to resolving environmental issues spreads, more companies than ever before are interested in the benefits sustainable packaging solutions can deliver to their organization.
The primary advantage of sustainable packaging is that fewer resources are utilized, which minimizes the impact of your operations on the environment – the same amount of raw material can produce a greater volume of packaging.
Shipping & Logistics
There is also an impact on your shipping and logistics. Since sustainable packaging takes up less shelf space and has less total volume than most traditional options, you’re able to fit more product in each load. This not only saves you shipping costs directly, it reduces the number of deliveries, resulting in less fossil fuel consumption.
Finally, you’ll be able to label your packaging and products environmentally friendly, which can enhance the social mission of your organization. As more and more companies make the commitment to switch to environmentally friendly business practices – including the sourcing of their packaging and shipping materials – your brand has an opportunity to stand out from the competition.
