Using Eco-Friendly or Sustainable Product Packaging

Nearly 70% of all consumers think it’s important that a brand is sustainable. They’re looking to invest in brands with eco-friendly or sustainable product packaging.

Building a completely sustainable company is daunting and may not be an option for many, but the journey starts with a single step. The easiest step to beginning to reduce your organization’s impact on the environment is by reducing your unsustainable product packaging practices.

Looking around, you’re sure to find some easy choices in sustainable product packaging suppliers advertised online. There are definitely pros to going eco-friendly, such as low minimum order quantities and low barriers to entry. The con? It comes at a slight cost increase.
