The reasons to make the shift to more sustainable packaging options are myriad. The first benefit, of course, is to put less stress on our planet. Non sustainable packaging can create quite a bit of excess waste. Single use plastic in packaging can sit in landfills for years, or end up contributing to the pollution of waterways. Sustainable packaging companies are on the rise to combat overall climate concerns.
Companies are, at their core, made up of people. And as people, we all know about the devastating effects of pollution and climate change. The good news, is that more sustainable options continue to crop up within the packaging world. No method will be perfect, but making the switch to more sustainable packaging can absolutely help. Additionally, though it would be worth doing on its own, there are actually great perks from switching to sustainable packaging companies.
The Extra Perks of Switching to Environment Friendly Packaging
First and foremost, consider that all of the human reasons you as a company may want to go sustainable, also apply to customers. You want to hit your sustainability goals and reduce your company’s impact on the planet? Well, we have great news for you! Customers, on the whole, also want those things for you.
Increasingly, consumers are savvy about the ethics of the products that they buy. This means that ethical companies like you can reap the perks of catching more customer eyes. Environment friendly packaging signals that your company is trying to do better by the Earth. And many customers will not only appreciate this, but will even be willing to pay a bit more as needed to support you in this endeavor.
Making the switch to sustainable packaging companies can also help get your company into the good books of potential retailers. Many retailers, including big retailers like Target, have made promises to customers about sustainability.
Because of this, companies who want to sell their products at these retailers will have to adhere to their packaging sustainability goals. Because of this, switching to working with eco friendly packaging companies can also help your company to work with more retailers. Yet again, sustainability can help open new doors for your company.
Another great perk of switching to sustainable packaging companies? Potentially saving in overall costs! Though you may hear sustainability and automatically think of increased cost, that really is not necessarily the case! Packaging that is made to be as minimal in materials as possible tick multiple boxes. Yes, minimal material helps with sustainability (which is the main goal). However, it can also cut down on packaging costs, and even shipping costs!
