Every human and company has a responsibility to each other and their future generations to help in the sustainability of the Earth. Environmental responsibly has become a standard for businesses that has led us and many other companies to look towards more environmentally friendly business practices.
If you’re starting a business and require boxes, you should consider environmentally friendly options; for those of you who’re already established, why not do more for the environment? In addition to a smaller carbon footprint, sustainable practices can also be a competitive advantage that consumers look for. It’s not uncommon today for consumers to purchase from one company over another because of their environmental impact, even if it may be more expensive. A 2015 global online survey by Nielsen showed that 66% of the 30,000-plus respondents said they would be willing to pay extra for sustainable goods.
Corrugated boxes are made from pine or birch tree pulp which are renewable materials and contain a high percentage of recycled content. Since a lot of recycled products can be used to make corrugated packaging, there is less energy involved in creating the packaging because production starts with less raw materials.
Our custom printed corrugated boxes are 100% recyclable after use, even with a printed design on it, because the ink we use is water-based. Once they are recycled they can go back into the production of more corrugated packaging. Our boxes are made only with North American paper pulp, reducing transportation emissions and further lowering the carbon footprint.
Next time you’re ready to place an order for packaging, stop to think about the environmental impact of your product and their custom boxes. Packaging helps to differentiate your brand, so why not also use it as a sustainable initiative that further differentiates you from the competition?
