101: Eco-Friendly Packaging


 

Eco-friendly packaging solutions are abundant today.
Turn to sustainable products for your packaging,
save money and help the health of our environment.
This article explains the ins and outs of recyclable
packaging and what you can do to make the switch.


Have you realised that purchasing products with expensive plastic non-recyclable packaging just adds to your trash? Most of these products are packaged in either plastic, paper, styrofoam, carton box, and other supplies that are not re-useable. Traditional chemical-based plastic has been the choice of many producers and manufacturers for a very long time. They make each item presentable and keep the product safe from damage. One thing about packaging is that it plays an important role as a medium of marketing and promotion campaigns through the label. It creates a brand identity and shelf impact. But is this so important to a consumeristic society today that we have forgotten to care for the health of all that surrounds us?
 
Often, people throw away the packaging in the trash, not realising that it can pile up with tons of toxic waste that may take hundreds of years to break down and is proven harmful to the environment. The good news is, biodegradable products are now made available and they are a very good alternative to our packaging needs.
 
So why switch to biodegradable packaging? It’s simple! Biodegradable products naturally decompose and are safe to the environment. They are also cheaper and if you plan your designs carefully, much more appealing to the consumer market. You know how much we love the Earth and as much as possible, we’d like to keep it toxic-free.
 
The Good news is that many retailers are getting environmentally conscious to their packaging needs these days. Eco-friendly packaging products are considered to be sustainable.  They provide a recyclable and reusable technique that will help reduce pollution to the environment. Sustainable packaging has a lower environmental impact, generally due to the materials used. More companies continuously review their use of packaging and looks for ways to present a more environment-friendly solution. The use of biodegradable materials also presents your company as being Earth conscious while using sustainable resources. Unlike conventional plastics which take hundreds of years to break down, biodegradable packaging can be composted and turned back into soil in less than 12 weeks.
 
At PACKQUEEN, we offer a range of different biodegradable packaging supplies. For example, our fully-recyclable presentation gift boxes come in different sizes and colours. They can also be customised to your needs. It is undeniable that eco-friendly packaging has been trending these days. Even the most simple, recycled look for your packaging can become special once you add a creative touch using bright and colorful labels. You'll be surprised that these recyclable packs are as sturdy as those conventional packaging supplies available. There are a lot of options to choose when you want to pack your items with eco-friendly packing materials. Do your homework and choose products that says “biodegradable” on their label. You'll be guilt-free when you throw away biodegradable trash as it won’t cause any harm to the environment. This is one way you're contributing to the earth's preservation and saving our planet - while keeping your product looking good!
