What we mean by ECO friendly packaging
World faces pollution
Pollution has been spreading at an alarming rate for far too many years. Landfills are overflowing, water is becoming undrinkable, and the air itself is being saturated with toxic fumes and chemicals. Only now, after so much damage has already been done, are world governments working to pass laws to combat the many woes of our world.
But many in the packaging industry have seen the damage long before the political system caught up, and began to research and develop products that could help to minimize the impact of packaging products on our eco system.
We derive our name here, ECO Packaging KE. Our products are environmentally friendly and therefore ZERO pollution.
New Types Of Eco Friendly Packaging
Some of the new systems of eco friendly packaging becoming commonplace in the packaging industry include:
• Recycled & Recyclable Packaging – Recycling has always been a staple of the packaging industry – they are now beginning to use 100% recycled and recyclable materials for shipping boxes, plastic products, and fiber moldings.
• Air Packaging – This form of packaging uses less disposable material because the main component of air packaging is… air. Examples of air packaging include inflatable air bags and bubble wraps.
• Biodegradable Foams – Normal Styrofoam is difficult to recycle and contains many harmful chemicals that enter the eco system as they break down over time. New technologies have developed foam materials made of corn starch and similar natural elements that are biodegradable and lack the harmful effects of traditional Styrofoam.
• Bioplastic Packaging – Packaging materials made of plastics based on natural oils (such as vegetable oil) instead of petroleum chemicals. Unlike normal plastics, bioplastics are biodegradable and do not transmit harmful chemicals into the environment as they break down.
As technology continues to improve, research continues to develop, and concern for the environment continues to spread, many packaging companies are continuing to strive to create more sustainable packaging solutions and bring them into use at lower prices.
Already, packaging industries have made great leaps and bounds to do their part in the battle to save Mother Earth. Sustainable, eco friendly packaging is not only the wave of the future – it is quite possibly the future’s savior.
