Nowadays, the theme of sustainability is becoming increasingly important and popular to companies, regardless of the industry they operate in. But, in particular, this subject is becoming more significant for food companies. Making a sustainable packaging is important because it reduces the ecological footprint of all the steps in the product’s life-cycle and it helps both the producer and the consumer reduce their environmental impact. According to the Sustainable Packaging Coalition®, a packaging can be defined sustainable only if there are a number of key features. So, an eco-friendly packaging should be: safe for people throughout its life cycle; meet market criteria for performance and cost; realized, transported, and recycled using renewable energy; optimize the use of renewable or recycled source materials; capable of being effectively recovered and reused; designed to optimize materials and energy.
Sustainable Packaging Companies
A lot of people are now understanding the importance of recycling and the effects it can have on all of us. For this reason, an increasing number of companies are striving to achieve an eco-friendly packaging. Aluminium is one of the most used materials to do this. It’s 100% recyclable and its recycling saves 95% of the energy needed to produce it from the raw material.
