Press release April 12, 2012 Energy & Environment

What are the benifits of using Eco frendly packaging products?

Eco friendly packaging plays a big role in our everyday lives, with hundreds & thousands of packages being sent and received every day in the UK there is a huge scope to be environmentally friendly. If you take a look at what happens once a parcel is received, you will be amazed what can be done to reduce your carbon footprint, such as recycling.

Things to remember with Eco packaging:

Recycling is where products reach the end of their life cycle and can no longer be reused. It is then time for it to be recycled into something new, which reduces the amount of waste being dumped in landfill sites. Recycling reduces waste disposal costs and saves energy in the long run.

Reusing packaging can also be very beneficial to the environment and it's a great option to reuse packaging as often as possible as this saves you money and helps protect our environment as new packaging will not have to be produced. Companies such as SpeedyPack re-use some packaging to send products out to customers in order to reduce their waste and help protect the environment.

One of the best ways to be environmentally friendly is to reduce the amount of material used in the first place. A great example of this is selecting the correct size packaging and opting for the ECO friendly products such as, EcoFlo loosefill. Getting made to measure boxes reduces the amount of material wasted, it also reduces space during transport as opting for a larger than necessary box would have taken up too much room.

Other benefits of using Eco friendly packaging include:

  • Reductions in packaging and material costs.
  • Can reduce supplier and customer costs.
  • Improves customer perceptions of a company or brand
  • Prevent damage of goods in transit.

Remember to check for the recycle logo when buying packaging products. By using Eco friendly packaging you are effectively helping to save the planet with the added bonus of saving your wallet to.
