Sustainable packaging refers to the sourcing, development, and use of packaging solutions that have minimal environmental impact and footprint. Simply put, we need to reduce, reuse & recycle!
There's no one size fits all model when it comes to sustainable packaging as every business is unique. What’s good for the environment should also be good for your bottom line.
- Ship in a smaller package.
Reducing your ecological footprint can be as simple as reducing the packaging materials you use. This means using smaller boxes or reducing materials for your packaging. If possible, play around with box size and positioning of your products and see if they can fit in smaller packages. There's really no disadvantage, you get to save on material and shipping cost!
- Recycled and Reusable Packaging
The easiest way to ensure the packaging creates the least impact on the planet is by manufacturing it using recyclable materials. Our cardboard and wrapping sheets are manufactured with recycled content are all readily available to you. Recycling is the easiest first step as tons of carton boxes are thrown away every year. However, that's not nearly enough. You need to encourage your end users to recycle your boxes too! We all have a part to play.
- Making the right decision
NEA study found that biodegradables also create negative environmental impact. These types of plastic are not completely dissolved by nature and leave behind microplastics that can end up back in the food chain. Especially in Singapore's context, all disposable are not directly landfilled but are incinerated to waste-to-energy plants. What’s more, they tend to cost more and uses more material.
Paper packaging can be water-resistant if you pick the right material but they are not waterproof. You don’t want to end up using 5X more paper material just to replace plastic. That’s a counter effective way and will only cause more harm to our planet and your business! The key is to reduce use of single-use plastic as much as possible, where possible.
- Materials are sourced & used responsibly
Using fewer raw materials is a legitimate nod to environmental concerns. Our mailer boxes are redesigned to reduce materials waste. Made up of only single wall carton, we strengthen its durability by using premium grade kraft paper. Paper are also responsibly sourced. We work hard to find that proper balance just for you and our environment.
Our mission begins with bringing positive changes. Be part of the change with us today.
