Environmentally friendly packaging can give your business a competitive advantage on the market. By implementing eco-friendly business practices, you demonstrate compassion and awareness, which can be a persuasive factor in helping customers decide between investing in your products, or the competition. Furthermore, companies that invest in green packaging also stand to save on costs such as shipping, material, and waste.
Reduce waste by removing excess packaging
The simplest way to go green is to streamline your packaging design. Eliminating excess packaging will make your shipments lighter, while also allowing larger quantities of product to fit on pallets, in shipping containers, and on retail shelves.
Keep in mind that the packaging still needs to protect your product, however, reducing packaging waste can be as simple as removing any material that is not needed from the process, and in some cases, a change in material may be necessary.
Ensure your packaging materials are from sustainable sources
Purchasing materials from sustainable sources is an important step towards improving your company’s sustainability practices. The best options are materials that your customers can recycle or reuse. Local recycling centres have an abundance of material and are happy for it to go to good use, such as being reused to ship your products. Companies that are willing to use recycles materials can find them in abundance all while saving on costs.
Recycle and reuse
More than ever, businesses are trying to find ways to recycle. The most common way to incorporate recycling in the production process has been by increasing the use of green transport packaging. Doing so provides more secure shipping, lowers supply chain system costs, and most importantly, reduces environmental impact.
Some of the worlds most successful companies, such as Coca Cola, have made the change to green packaging as a means of both reducing waste, damaged products, and shipping cost.
