Recycling schemes exist for most types of plastic and cardboard packaging. But many companies are keen to do more. Perhaps you want to prove your environmentally friendly credentials and cut your carbon footprint further.
Using eco-friendly packaging can demonstrate to consumers and stakeholders a more conscientious approach to the earth’s resources. And we can help you do that, with more sustainable contract packing materials.
You can specify any of our co-packing services – shrink wrapping, flow wrapping, bagging and hand-picking and packing – with eco-friendly packaging alternatives.
The range of more environmentally friendly packing materials is wider than you might think.
Some qualify for Food Safe and BRC accreditation, for containing or wrapping food or other perishable items. Some are fully biodegradable and will break down in a home compost bin. Each has its advantages and disadvantages, suitable applications and limitations.
Here are just some of the eco-friendly packaging options we can source:
As you can see, not every option brings the same sustainability benefits, and not every option is suitable for every packing or packaging task. It’s all about the practical application and what matters most to you.
If you’d like a contract packing order fulfilled with more environmentally friendly packaging, we can help you decide which method achieves the right balance between financial sustainability and environmental sustainability.
