Eco-friendly packaging brings to enormous benefits to the environment and to the companies. In particular, the use of environmental resources can be optimized – reduce solid waste, water usage, electricity and emissions – and the production waste can be minimized. In addition, a company can gain advantages from a sustainable packaging: improvement of its brand image, reduction of shipping costs, expansion of its customer base.
What’s the most eco-friendly food packaging?
Choosing a packaging material with a low impact on the environment isn’t so easy. There are a lot of things to consider: life-cycle, transportation, energy to be made and to be recycled. Aluminium is an eco-friendly material to use for food. It’s 100% recyclable and can be recycled endlessly without any loss in purity or quality. In addition, products from recycled require about 5% of the energy required to make the same products from bauxite ore. That means there’s a pretty good chance most of the aluminium you’re consuming – particularly in food packaging – is mostly recycled.
