Extremely important.

Sustainable Packaging can only be achieved by the use of packaging which reduces the environmental impact and ecological footprint.

Dairy-based films, edible packaging, biodegradable plastics etc are being used prominently instead of being made of synthetic polymers. More research must be done to improve the water barrier quality of these new innovations, but advances in sustainable packaging are actively being pursued.

Companies have long been reusing and recycling packaging when economically viable. Using minimal packaging has also been a common goal to help reduce costs. Recent years have accelerated these efforts based on social movements, consumer pressure, and regulation.

Sustainable packaging is no longer focused on just recycling.

Packaging is frequently scrutinized and used as the measure of a company's overall sustainability, even though it may contribute only a small percentage to the total eco impact compared to other things, but let the pressure be there.. Bring it on.... as that is the only way to ensure further improvements...

Companies using environment-friendly packaging materials are reducing their carbon footprint, using more recycled materials and minimizing waste generation. Companies that highlight their environmental initiatives to consumers can increase sales as well as boost product reputation. For more information visit Lagerblad Förpackningsmaskiner (

Hi Vishal,

I had just wrote a post regarding environmental friendly approach just putting the link below for that, hope you may like it. ... g-gimmick/

Also, you may be interested to go through the Sustainable Packaging Guidelines by Australian Packaging Covenant, these are provided for optimizing the consumer packaging, and to make efficient use of resources and reduce environmental impact without compromising product quality and safety. ... guidelines ... elines.pdf
