Is Sustainable Packaging really as complex as it sounds? It doesn’t have to be.
Changing the materials that directly contact your product should be approached with caution. If any of the ingredients that go in to the making of the component are changed, be it a bottle, a sachet or pouch, a tube, it is vital that product/packaging compatibility testing be performed. This can get involved!
So, what can you do to change your package to be more Environmentally Responsible? It’s important to look at the entire supply chain to identify opportunities:
– Can the package be made smaller? Smaller containers use less material.
– How will an increased package count affect package costs? Putting more into the same sized container
makes more efficient use of space and provides an opportunity to offer your customer a bonus!
– What would a change in case count do? Shipping in larger counts improves freight efficiencies.
– Can folding cartons, if used, be re-configured or done away with altogether? Today’s package decoration
technologies can create labels that carry more information than ever before. Maybe, that carton isn’t
