Celebrate Earth Day 2017: Saturday, April 22
Earth Day 2017 is celebrated on April 22. Now is the perfect time of year to keep the Earth and our environment in mind when evaluating and designing your next packaging collection. Many types of bags, boxes, materials and treatments can be harmful to the environment. It’s wise to think about other options to lessen your carbon footprint, which will result in less waste in landfills over time.
Substituting materials that are biodegradable is one great option to keep our environment clean. Creating reusable shopping bags out of ecological and synthetic materials such as cotton, jute, linen, muslin, and pp non woven will be sure to help reduce unnecessary waste. Consumers will use them for a longer period of time before they are thrown away.
Paper containing an amount of post-consumer waste is another great option when creating Earth friendly packaging. This option will recycle old used paper into a new and stylish shopper for your company. Packaging created from post consumer waste also abides by certain city and state wide bag ban laws that were placed by cities around the country. This ensures shopping bags are created with the correct amount of recycled materials to help eliminate paper waste.
Along with eco-friendly materials, custom printing on your packaging can also be friendly to the environment. Printing with soy-based inks instead of other ink options that use harsh chemicals is definitely something to think about when designing your packaging. Combining all of these options is a step in the right direction for your eco-friendly packaging.
