What is Eco Friendly Packaging?

Eco-friendly packaging, often referred to as sustainable packaging, can be defined as packaging that satisfies the following requirements:

  • Easy to recycle
  • Biodegradable and non-polluting
  • Doesn’t harm humans or animals
  • Possibly made out of recycled materials
  • Manufactured with low energy consumption

Other aspects of sustainable packaging include: using overall less casing and materials, cutting back on packaging costs, removing potentially harmful or toxic elements from the packaging materials, while having the option to reuse the same boxes (or packaging) multiple times.

Sustainable Packaging Materials

There are several types of traditional, as well as more innovative materials that are biodegradable and come from renewable resources. In this section we’ll cover three of them:

  • Cardboard and Paper: cardboard is an environmentally friendly material that most people are familiar with. By its nature, cardboard is organic, sustainable and reusable for different types of packaging. Cardboard easily breaks down in landfill.
  • Corrugated boxes: another type of sustainable material for packaging is corrugated cardboard, which is very strong and sturdy, typically suitable for shipping.
  • Soy Ink: printing with soy ink is environmentally friendly because this type of ink does not contain petroleum, it’s not toxic and can even produce brighter colors.
