What is eco-friendly packaging?

You have surely heard of eco-friendly packaging or sustainable, green, environmentally friendly packaging... But what does all this mean? And when can we use the term eco-friendly packaging?

We talk about sustainable packaging when packaging is produced using materials or raw materials from the recycling chain or raw materials that are easy to dispose of or recyclable. At the same time, to be sustainable, packaging must be produced through a sustainable production process and have a logistics and production chain that is as short as possible.

What should sustainable packaging be like?

Sustainable packaging must use recyclable and materials that are easy to dispose of, such as cardboard, and avoid the use of plastic as much as possible. As we know in certain areas, however, plastic is necessary because of its properties. In these cases, in order for the packaging to be as sustainable as possible, it is best to use recycled or easily recyclable plastic.

What are the most used materials for more sustainable packaging?

  • Paper and cardboard: Obtained from trees, they are completely biodegradable.
  • Recycled paper: Paper from the circular economy for recycling.
  • Biodegradable plastics: There are plastic bags that decompose when exposed to sunlight.
  • Recycled plastics: Plastics from a circular economy for recycling.
  • Recyclable plastics: Plastic is composed of linear polymers that are easily recyclable.

Why choose eco-friendly packaging?

There are countless good reasons to use sustainable packaging: eco-friendly packaging is a fundamental element of the green strategies adopted by many companies in recent years.

The adoption of more sustainable packaging can be highly valued by consumers and lead to increased sales.

But firstly, there is a big reason why it makes sense to adopt eco-friendly packaging, which is to reduce the plastics in circulation and change our future!

Did you know that 2,315 thousand tons of plastic wrapping were produced in Italy alone in 2019? This trend is unfortunately on the rise despite the “green” change that many companies seem to have undertaken and this immense amount of plastic then pours into our seas, polluting them for millennia!

Therefore, adopting measures to make your own packaging more sustainable is not only a question of sales and economic return but also, and most importantly, an ethical choice that we owe to our planet and to future generations.

Sustainable packaging: printing plastic-free boxes and pouches with Pixartprinting

What do we mean by sustainable packaging? What is sustainability?

Packaging is not only a tool available to companies to preserve a product during transport but also a real opportunity for communication and promotion. A package, in fact, may be able to attract consumers attention from the shelf and tell them about the qualities of the content before convincing them to buy. The choice of packaging often reflects a company’s branding and the values on which the company is founded. Today, respect for the environment is undoubtedly one of the most appreciated values in the market. The trend towards "plastic free" is increasingly widespread and companies are looking for new eco-friendly solutions for the use of recyclable packaging that has a lower environmental impact.

With Pixartprinting, you can create customised sustainable packaging for your products.
