4 Advantages of Eco-Friendly Packaging

As a company, one of your responsibilities is to find the right packaging for shipping your products. In order to find the right packaging, you need to consider cost, materials, size and more. One of the latest trends is to opt for using eco-friendly packaging materials such as the sustainable solutions and environmentally-friendly products we offer at Hughes. We are pleased to offer you a wide variety of eco-friendly packaging materials, packaging supplies and equipment to fulfill any and all of your shipping and packaging needs. See our full list of products on our recent blog post, “Go Green for Earth Month with Eco-Friendly Packaging.” It is clear that choosing to use this type of packaging provides you with many benefits including the following four:

1. Decrease Carbon Footprint

The clearest benefit of eco-friendly packaging is in relation to protecting our environment. Eco-friendly packaging is usually made from biodegradable, recycled material which reduces the waste of natural resources for production. In addition, the manufacturing process tends to be more efficient, further reducing precious resources and minimizing the negative impact businesses have on the environment.

2. Biodegradable

In addition to reducing your carbon footprint and environmental impact green packaging has positive long term effects even after it’s used for shipping. These alternative sustainable materials are biodegradable and recyclable, making their impact on the environment minimal. See our recent post, “So Long Styrofoam” about the ban on packaging peanuts, for example.

3. Multipurpose

In addition to helping the environment from beginning to end, sustainable packaging is very versatile, finding uses in every major industry using regular packaging. Whether you are looking to package cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, electronics, or automotive parts there is an eco-friendly packaging product available to meet your green needs.

4. Improve Brand Image

Finally, environmentally-friendly packaging improves your brand image. When your clients learn that you use sustainable resources, they will see that you not only care about this planet, but also that you are a responsible company. This improved brand image will further your company’s profits and improve your ROI.
