Whether business is booming or you are an individual seeking to send and store your personal items, choosing an eco-friendly packaging supplier can help you to go green in your daily choices.
At Smith Packaging, we are serious about sustainability, which is why the vast majority of our packaging options are eco-conscious and consumer-friendly. From recyclable cardboard boxes to biodegradable packing peanuts, paper tape, and even bubble wrap that can be reused and recycled, when it comes to packaging, we are here to help you wave farewell to waste.
What Is Eco-Friendly Packaging?
Eco-friendly and sustainable packaging is all about choosing to use packaging that is geared towards sustainability. This can mean packaging that has a longer life cycle as it can be reused. It can also mean packaging that is made from recycled materials or that can be recycled. It can also mean packaging that has taken less power and resources to create.
Some of the most popular and well-known forms of eco-friendly packaging include cardboard, paper, and products made from cornstarch. Eco-friendly packaging should have the ethos that it’s safer for the planet and the people.
When to Use Sustainable Packaging
Really everyone should be making the switch to eco-friendly packaging. In a world where plastic pollution is a big problem, it helps if we all take responsibility and do our bit. This includes consumers and companies alike. Reducing waste, choosing earth-friendly solutions, and going green in all the tiny ways we can will help this.
For businesses, this can mean making a concerted effort to reduce excess commercial packaging and choosing materials (whether a simple box or hefty pallet wrap) that comes from a greener, cleaner, sustainable wholesale packaging company. For individuals, this can mean swapping your usual gift wrapping paper for recycled paper rolls and string, and using Kraft tape instead of Sellotape. Whether you are packing something, storing, or shipping – you should always look to eco-friendly packaging as the number one solution.
The Benefits of Eco-Friendly Packaging
There are so many benefits that come with picking eco-friendly packaging, and by opting to make the effort to be more earth-friendly, you are not just making it a personal benefit, but a benefit for the whole planet. Here are some more benefits of eco-friendly packaging:
- Helps reduce your carbon footprint
- Can be easily reused or recycled
- Reduces transportation costs
- Good for brand image
- Reduces the amount of waste
