Use a packaging material that keeps your products and the environment safe.
It doesn’t take a lot to notice that America and the rest of the world are raising concerns about the harmful impact of material waste on the environment. The results of yesterday’s just “throw it in the trash” mentality of handling waste materials has resulted in landfills at near capacity as each person, on average, disposes of 4.48 pounds of trash daily.
While this amount is actually down from past years’ totals, it’s still a lot. Much of the waste material can be attributed to product packaging such as plastics. Here’s some food for thought: according to the EPA, plastics were 2nd only to food in the largest amount of product materials being disposed in landfills.
At EnviroPAK, we are doing our part to protect the environment with our molded pulp packaging that is made from 100% recycled paper. Every EnviroPAK product is wholly recyclable and sustainable.
What is sustainable packaging?
Probably one of the most common questions EnviroPAK clients have about sustainable packaging can be summed up in one sentence, “At what point is packaging considered sustainable?” The answer can be found by turning to the Sustainable Packaging Coalition. They define sustainable packaging in many ways, including that it’s beneficial, safe and healthy for individuals and communities throughout its life cycle; meets market criteria for performance and cost; and it is effectively recovered and utilized in biological and/or industrial closed loop cycles.
The pulp molded packaging we manufacture for our clients is made entirely out of recycled newspaper. It makes our packaging for everything from electronics and medical devices to food and beverages 100% recyclable and 100% sustainable. Plus, it’s 100% ideal and proven effective for protecting your product during shipping.
Here’s some news: we use recycled newspaper.
Did you know that EnviroPAK pulp molded packaging is manufactured using nearly 20 tons of repurposed recycled newspaper per day? It’s a fact. If you think that’s a lot, just consider this adds up to over 5,000 tons per year. Plus, since it is repurposed for product packaging, the landfills and the environment are getting much needed relief.
Another point of difference with EnviroPAK is that our pulp molded packaging is completely biodegradable, Green DOT Compliant and conforms to European Green Compliant ISO-14000 standards. It’s evident that we have high standards when it pertains to sustainability. This is all backed by how we produce environmentally friendly packaging that measures up to the rigorous global standards and the expectations of environmentally sensitive consumers.
Green helps keep your financials in the black.
A recent study conducted by NYU Stern’s Center for Sustainable Business on U.S. consumers’ actual purchasing of consumer packaged goods (CPG) found that 50% of all CPG growth from 2013 to 2018 came from sustainability-marketed products. If you’re sensing a business growth trend here that can be applied to your organization, we think you’re correct.
In this same study by NYU Stern it was found that within 90% of the CPG categories, sustainability-marketed products grew faster than their conventional counterparts using other non-recyclable or difficult to recycle materials (this includes plastic materials such as polyethylene terephthalate (PET), Polystyrene (PS) and high-density polyethylene (HDPE).
This is why utilizing earth-friendly packaging from EnviroPAK does a world of good for your business growth potential.
