Sustainable Packaging
Is Always an Option

Sustainable packaging can be a cost effective and easy strategy to decrease a company’s carbon footprint.


Sustainable – or eco-friendly – packaging has become more prevalent in recent years. Response to consumer demand as well as an increase in individual state’s legislation ensures we will see more ecologically sensitive packaging in the future.

Legislation will significantly impact how businesses package and ship product across state lines. California’s Proposition 65 ( provides an excellent example of businesses – inside and out of the state – affected by the need for sustainable packaging.

For approximately the same cost, packaging can easily be made more eco-friendly by:

post content resin

Reducing virgin material content in favor of post-consumer resins [PCR]

Reduce weight improved energy

Reducing gram weight to decrease fuel/energy consumption and material waste

undercoated packing containers

  • Decrease package size
