From eco friendly packaging for cosmetics to eco friendly jewellery packaging, your boxes can make a positive impact on the environment while delivering a beautiful unboxing experience. No matter what industry you're in, put your brand's greet foot forward by switching to sustainable packaging.
Help us contribute to the reforestation of our planet with your packaging orders. For every 200 boxes you order with PackMojo, we'll plant 1 tree and gift it to you! We've partnered with EcoMatcher, a transparent tree-planting company that works with vetted foundations around the world to support smallholder farmers.
Feel free to tell your customers how your packaging has contributed to new trees being planted! Whether on social media or directly printed on your packaging, your customers will be happy to know they're working with an eco conscious brand like yours.
The easiest way to make sure your packaging boxes are minimizing damage to the planet is to opt for sustainable packaging materials.
All of our materials are paper and cardboard based, and we don't produce any plastic packaging. Our materials are made from a minimum of 50% post-consumer content, while we provide aqueous finish options (e.g. matte varnish) in place of standard plastic laminates.
We recognize that packaging makes up a significant portion of what is delivered to landfills each year. That's why we only produce eco friendly packaging materials as they are renewable and biodegradable.

All of our ink is soy-based, which is environmentally friendly and used to produce much brighter and vibrant colors.
Soy-based ink is produced from soybean oil, mixed with natural resins and waxes. Not only is it non-toxic and easier to recycle, it's also more cost effective than traditional petroleum ink.
After your order has been delivered to you, you'll receive an email with a link to track your tree(s). Simply click on the link to see type of tree, who has planted it, and more!
All of our packaging is paper based. Our boxes are made of at least 50% post-consumer content and the standard finish we use is a varnish, which makes the packaging biodegradable. Smaller mailer boxes and folding cartons without lamination or add ons (spot UV, foil stamping, etc) can be home composted as well.
By using eco friendly packaging materials and avoiding the use of any kind of lamination makes our boxes 100% recyclable. However, most rigid boxes require the use of lamination and because it uses a thin layer of plastic, it is more difficult to properly recycle these types of boxes.
Post-consumer content is all the waste that was used by consumers previously and has been discarded to be used again in the manufacturing process.
Soy-based ink, as the name suggests, is made of soybeans. The resins and waxes used are also natural additives making the ink extremely ecofriendly and biodegradable. Ink is considered soy-based if at least 6-40% of the ink consists of soy.
Petroleum-based ink, on the other hand, is made of crude oil. This type of ink is toxic, flammable, and emits volatile organic compounds when it dries.
The eco-friendliness of your packaging would depend on the materials used for your packaging. Generally, if it's just paper and cardboard based packaging, it's the most eco-friendly.
