The way you package your products says a lot about your company. Is your company environmentally conscientious? Is your company smart? Is your company creative? Of course, you want your customers to answer yes to all those questions, and it might just be easier to achieve this than in the past. With flexible, eco-friendly packaging you have a lot of options at your fingerprints. You also have the power to take control of many aspects of your business. Recyclable packaging sends a powerful message of sustainability to your customers, and that’s just for starters.
The Impacts of Recycling
It’s no secret that there is a lot of packaging in the world. Much of it is just thrown away and those resources are gone for good. With recycling, a portion of the materials can be reused, which allows for lower energy use and fewer natural resources impacted. When you consider your packaging needs, look for a company that sources its material from recyclable components. In many cases, that refers to stand-alone films and print and sealant films for laminations. Multi-layer films that meet your packaging requirements and have the added benefit of recyclability can be dropped off into recycling streams, thus reducing greenhouse emissions. In fact, flexible packaging has a much lower footprint overall than other forms of packaging.
The Benefits of Smart Packaging
Flexible packaging is versatile and adaptable, and it provides options in the form of lay-out pouches, stand-up pouches and roll stock. It also provides a host of environmental benefits when it comes to snack packaging. It all centers around a digital printing process that is better for the planet than the old process of snack bag printing. The following areas of the environment gain from this process:
- Ozone depletion
- Water depletion
- Energy demand
- Global warming
The entire process adds value to your company. Waste is reduced by allowing you to order only the amount of packaging necessary. You get an affordable, competitive price. Set up time is shorter with a print-on-demand feature, and the need for plates in the printing is eliminated. You also get access to quality graphics that make your product look great while locking in freshness with an airtight seal. Flexible packaging promotes your brand and image and makes your company (and you) look smart, environmental and creative.
