To help you focus your efforts, the above tips can be grouped into three categories:
By designing packaging alongside your products, you can offer customers something truly innovative and unique. Packaging offers an experience to customers, and a smart, recyclable or biodegradable packaging solution can wow them and make them remember you.
Packaging waste isn’t just an end-consumer issue. You will want to start looking for suppliers that provide recyclable or biodegradable packing solutions themselves. Have your employees sort through this “waste” and bale it for storage. When you have a large volume of sorted recyclable waste, you can partner with recycling centres or other businesses and sell it on to reduce your expenditure.
Print-to-order has come a long way from its early days, meaning you can order custom packaging as and when you need it. What matters is that you partner with a company that cares about the same values as you do. This applies to product packaging all the way to an event or carrier packaging. If you want to promote a green eco-conscious brand, you don’t want to send your customers away with plastic bags.
You need sustainably produced, biodegradable and recyclable bags for your business. You also don’t want to over order and end up with thousands of bags you’ll never use. That is why you need high-quality print-to-order paper bags like the ones we offer. They are perfect for your brand and can help you stand out in your store or event.
You can also showcase the fact that your brand packaging is 90% sourced and manufactured by KZN, the FSC accredited paper mill, and proudly made in Pinetown KZN, South Africa. The focus on local production, FSC credited sources, and a commitment to helping your brand stand out is exactly the sort of qualities you need to look for in a packaging provider.
