Green Packaging: How It Affects Our Business
What is green packaging?
Moving towards more sustainable products continues to be at the front of business goals and what consumers care about. For packaging companies, going green could fall under many different categories, but we’ll focus on green packaging. Green packaging has gained a lot of awareness in this industry, but let’s take a closer look at what this means.
For manufacturers, green packaging involves changing a process or materials used in their packaging in order to make their impact on the environment not as harmful. This could include using recyclable, recycled or biodegradable materials.
Why should you use green packaging?
Brand owners and companies having sustainability goals not only benefits the environment but the company as well. In a recent study, 73% of people who participated showed that their companies gave more attention to packaging sustainability because “lighter packaging reduces the packaging and transporting costs.”
Beyond reducing costs, sustainability, in general, is the preferred choice for customers. Unilever found that a third of consumers (33%) that were surveyed are now choosing to buy from brands they believe are doing social or environmental good.
How do we use green packaging?
For us, green packaging means that the package has a low impact on the environment and the packaging process consumes minimum energy. Our business is all about reducing waste and increasing efficiency from the flexible packaging business through pouches all based from pre-made technology.
We supply state-of-the-art machinery that provides sustainable solutions. For spout inserting, our SI-100 and SI-200 Spouting Inserting Machines feature ultrasonic welding that uses recyclable film material and has optimal energy efficiency. This machine is completely ready for recycle ready materials.
For pouch making, our Pouchmaker PM machine also has optimal energy efficiency through its ultrasonic welding. And like the spout inserting machines, these are ready for recycle ready film.
With our solutions, packaging manufacturers can offer more sustainable packaging systems that will benefit their entire community. Their packaging can then be easily recycled through existing PE film recycle streams, such as at grocery store drop-off locations.
