Go Green on Earth Day 2018, Sunday April 22
On April 22, people in the U.S. and around the world will celebrate Earth Day 2018 by bringing ecological awareness to their hometowns and cities. Now is the ideal time of year to fully celebrate Earth Day 2018 by staying environmentally conscious when it comes to your packaging collection while staying on trend. There are many ways to create green inspired packaging from choosing the materials, custom handles, and special treatments to custom printing and current trends.
Paper shopping bags ranging in size and design can be created from durable and recyclable materials like specialty papers made from post consumer waste, and kraft papers, which can be FSC® Certified. FSC® (The Forest Stewardship Council) is one of the most credible resources in protecting natural reserves and oversees responsibly forested wood that is made into paper. These responsibly sourced materials can be used to create a custom paper bag that fits your brand.
Continuing the eco-friendly trend, your brand also has the option of creating a reusable tote bag or pouch made from durable materials like pp non woven, pp woven, cotton, jute and muslin. These materials can be used to create a unique carrier that is tailored to your identity. Reusable tote bags and pouches are so versatile; they can be used as an everyday fashion accessory, for storage, or simply as a tote for running errands.
Current trends can also be incorporated to create a totally unique packaging collection for your brand. Bold floral prints on bright color palettes is the perfect trend to incorporate into your Earth Day inspired packaging. Creative designs ranging from leafy silhouettes to vintage inspired botanicals will create a trending design on your seasonal packaging. To complete the overall look of your collection, add delicate embellishments like spot uv, embroidery, drawstring closures, zippers or earth inspired handles like braided jute, cotton twill, or woven materials. For a unique touch, interior printing can be added.
Earth Day is all about being aware of your impact on the environment. However, your packaging doesn’t have to be boring; incorporating nature and current floral trends onto your packaging collections while still being eco-friendly is an easy possibility.
