Thinking about making the switch to more sustainable packaging?
73% of UK consumers say paper or cardboard packaging is important to them when considering a brand's level of sustainability. 77% of UK consumers state that brands should use as little packaging as possible. 66% said it is important to them that the packaging can be recycled.
Why is eco-friendly packaging beneficial?
Eco-friendly packaging reduces the negative impact on the environment. It often involves using materials that are renewable, recyclable, or biodegradable, which helps reduce the consumption of non-renewable resources and minimises waste generation. By opting for eco-friendly packaging, we can lower carbon emissions, reduce landfill waste, and conserve natural resources.
It reduces waste
Traditional packaging materials, such as single-use plastics and excessive packaging, contribute significantly to the global waste problem. Eco-friendly packaging focuses on minimising waste by using sustainable materials and optimising packaging designs. It encourages the use of recyclable or compostable materials, which can be reused or recycled, reducing the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.
It's preferable for new potential customers
Many consumers are becoming increasingly conscious of their environmental impact and actively seek out products with eco-friendly packaging. Offering a sustainable packaging option could mean your customer choosing your product over a competitor’s.
