The 1970’s was the decade that saw the beginning of the environmental movement. It was then that the first Earth Day was celebrated, that the Environmental Protection Agency was created and that the slogan ‘reduce, reuse, recycle’ was first used. Since then, reduce, reuse, recycle has been used time and time again, to encourage consumers to take responsibility of where their packaging ends up. However, why should the responsibility of being sustainable just be down to the consumer?
At Polypouch, we produce sustainable pouch packaging, encouraging brands to make more sustainable packaging choices. In doing so, we enable both brands and consumers to work together to reduce, reuse and recycle.
Whilst originally aimed at consumers, we believe this point is better targeted at brands. After all, the packaging that brands use can have a huge impact on the environment, when being produced and transported. Fortunately, our stand-up pouches have an extremely efficient production process, meaning they require less energy and resources to produce than other contemporary production processes. On top of this, the lightweight nature of our pouches means that more can be stored and delivered in a single journey. By thinking carefully about the packaging they use, brands have the opportunity to reduce their carbon footprints.
Once a brand implements a more environmentally friendly form of packaging, it’s up to consumers to consider the sustainability of the packaging they purchase. Choosing packaging that can be reused is a simple way to reduce the amount of single-use packaging that ends up in landfill sites. At Polypouch, our clear pouches are available with a zipper or grip seal, allowing customers to reseal and reuse them with ease. Able to be reused time and time again, our sustainable pouch packaging can help to significantly reduce the single-use waste of consumers.
More of a team effort, recycling is something that both brands and consumers should consider when choosing packaging types. For brands, it’s vital to design packaging that can be sustainably disposed of and make this obvious to consumers. For consumers, it’s important to take note of the packaging material and how best to dispose of it at home. With a number of recyclable pouches available, we make it easy for both brands and consumers to dispose of our packaging, without impacting the surrounding environment.
At Polypouch, we understand the detrimental impact that packaging can have on the environment. That’s why we’ve designed our packaging with the environment in mind. We have various options of compostable and recyclable pouches available, providing brands and consumers with plenty of environmentally friendly packaging options.
