Eco-friendly packaging material

Eco-friendly boxes are the kind that is made of all the recycled and can further be recyclable material. The type which decomposes itself by living organisms like bacteria. Bio-degradable materials cause zero environmental pollution. These containers have the least negative impact on the environment regarding pollution, leaving no or minimum carbon footprint.

1.   Benefits of Eco-friendly material

Eco-friendly boxes are made up of reused or natural raw material like wood pulp, bamboo fiber, bamboo hardwood, sugarcane fibers, and hemp, etc. that go through a whole process to make cartons and paperboard. Materials like plastic are hardest to decompose as they are non-recyclable and take hundreds of years to decompose on its own.

Bio-degradable: Biggest issue with anything is how to decompose it after the use because waste has to go somewhere from the face of Earth. Bio-degradable means it is decomposed by bacteria or living organisms, which means no additional effort and money is required, also no excess co2 that is emitted by burning the things that are non-biodegradable.

Recyclable: Recyclable means no waste. Such items can be used again to make new products that means less production cost. Keeping in view, the need companies are now making Eco-friendly gift boxes instead of non-recyclable.

2.   The demand of the consumers

With the awareness about the degrading condition of Earth and how it is affecting the health and natural resources, people are more conscious of what to buy or what not to. Non-recyclable material stays forever in the landfills and produce dangerous gases and cause soil pollution, air pollution, and water pollution. 

Eco boxes are what people need now. They have a strong relationship with the customers who are entirely boycotting plastic or any non-environmental friendly packing material. That is why companies are producing Eco packaging to satisfy consumers and build customer loyalty.

To decrease or at least stop it from increasing it becomes every company’s duty to cut down the use of non-ecofriendly material. Every industry has started using eco-friendly packaging materials to create a difference because it cannot be done only by few if others will keep doing the same.

Consumers are aware of the impact of their consumption on the environment and do not think twice before choosing the products with environment-friendly packing and are against all the companies that do not support it. So it also increases the sales along with the customer satisfaction and loyalty when they see green boxes on the shelves by their favorite brand.

4.   Go green

Go green means a change in lifestyle that includes more of the Eco-friendly, bio-degradable, and recyclable products. It was started in the efforts to decrease the pollution as much possible as it can be and planting more and more of the trees or plants and boycotting non-ecofriendly products. It is essential to understand the fact that Earth has minimal natural resources left to support all kind of life on the planet. To regain or reboot nature, it is essential to stop whatever is causing the problem. People are religiously following it go green tend, and that is one of the reasons every brand is switching to green packaging.

5.   Not to lose the name

Companies are well aware of the effects of not changing to Eco packaging. It can cause irreversible destruction to a brand name, reputation, sales, demand, and worth. There is no one brand who would want to lose a single customer because the competition is high, and they can’t afford to go to the bottom and start the struggle all over again. Brands build the products, and the customers assemble the name. Even if they do not want to change, they have to, or else there are a lot of other options, and people do not take a second to do so.

6.   Cost-effective and Durable

Not only helpful in maintaining the balance of nature, but sustainable packaging is also the most cost-effective and durable packing solution. Eco-friendly packaging does not mean that the quality of a product will decrease. There are a lot of quality materials that produce zero pollution during manufacturing and decomposing like cardboard, corrugated, Kraft, and e-flute material.

This initiative was taken keeping in view the dire need of keeping the balance of nature maintained or with more time life on Earth would be impossible. It is every person’s right to contribute to the cause and fulfill their responsibility towards the Mother Earth.
