Trends in Eco-Friendly Packaging

Eco-friendly is the way of the future
There are many promising trends in eco-friendly packaging that are working to reduce waste associated with packaging materials. These trends include:
- Recyclable materials. It may seem simple, but a large push for completely recyclable materials in packaging means a lot less garbage in the landfill. Experts are constantly striving to find new ways to recycle necessary packaging materials that have historically been difficult to recycle.
- Reducing packaging. Many manufacturers are making packaging as lightweight and small as possible. This really is a case of less is more. Less material, less waste, less manufacturing and shipping costs equals more savings for both the business and the consumer. It’s a win-win situation here!
- Labelling that informs the consumer. Consumers want to make the responsible choice when it comes to eco-friendly packaging. Clear labelling on the outside of a package that details if and how much of it is recyclable is a great way to help them.
- Plant-based plastics. This is an exciting new avenue for the packaging industry. Using renewable biomass sources, some manufacturers are producing bioplastics for packaging materials. At the moment, there are a limited number of facilities making bioplastics, but it is the way of the packaging future.
- A shift in shipping materials. The shipping industry is also jumping on the eco-friendly trend. Using materials like biodegradable packing peanuts and air pillow cushions, shipping has never been safer and greener.
