Biodegradable Packaging Ideas
As concerns surrounding the future of our planet grow, businesses are increasingly looking for biodegradable packaging ideas to meet the demands of environmentally conscious consumers. Nearly one-third of waste in U.S.landfills comes from containers and packaging, leading eco-conscious consumers to vote with their dollar by purchasing more earth-friendly products.
What Types of Biodegradable Packaging Materials Are Consumers Looking For?
Consumers with the future state of the earth on their minds are seeking out sustainably sourced ingredients and packaging that leaves nothing behind, even on items that will ultimately end up in the landfill. They want eco-conscious, low-carbon practices from concept to delivery, and are willing to pay a premium for products that meet these criteria.
As an Alameda County certified green business, Pacific Color understands the importance of sustainable, ecologically sound practices. Together, we can work with you to help you minimize your business’ environmental impact with solutions such as:
- Biodegradable and recyclable packaging.
Packaging made of 100% recycled materials, or that composts and breaks down quickly, such as compostable cellophane wrapping and paper, is highly attractive to consumers.
- Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified paper and packaging.
FSC certified paper and packaging are sustainably produced and can be just as earth friendly as recycled options, which are also available with FSC certification.
- Reusable packaging.
Refillable packaging prevents waste from entering the environment.
- Plant-based plastics.
New to the packaging arena, plant-based bioplastics come from renewable biomass sources, such as cellulose, starches, and vegetable oils. They will play a growing role in packaging design.
