How eco-friendly is your packaging?

With more and more pressure being placed on businesses to reduce their carbon footprint and become more environmentally responsible, the packaging we all use on a daily basis has finally come under the spotlight.

With millions of tons of unrecyclable waste sent to landfill each year, businesses need to take responsibility for what happens to their packaging post-purchase in order to boost their eco-credentials. Let's take a look at some better alternatives for greener, more sustainable packaging.


Branded coffee cups

Major retailers of takeaway coffee have been blasted by environmental groups and the media recently due to their failure to adopt greener, recyclable cups.

Each year, UK lovers of hot takeout drinks use more than 2.5 billion disposable coffee cups, amounting to millions of tons of waste that cannot be recycled and eventually ends up in landfill.

Not only has their inability to adopt greener solutions sooner been harming our natural environment, but it has also encouraged customers to go elsewhere for their favourite hot beverages.

PackGenie’s disposable coffee cups are 100% recyclable and made from paper sourced from FSC approved and managed forests. Not only are they better for the planet, but they are suitable for a wide range of cold and hot drinks and can be branded in CMYK full colour with a matt finish to help your business really stand out for the right reasons.


Personalised tissue paper

Tissue paper is an excellent way to present gorgeous gifts and high-end products, but sadly many of the materials used to create these packaging types do not come from sustainable sources.

Using FSC (Forrest Stewardship Council) certified paper and printed with soy-based inks, PackGenie tissue paper products are not only a great way to boost your brand, but they are also 100% biodegradable too, making them ideal for the more eco-conscious business.


Printed stickers

Most modern stickers use chemical inks and paper products that do not come from managed forests, making them doubly harmful for our natural environment.

The perfect partner for our eco-friendly branded tissue paper products, making your branding ‘stick’ with our PackGenie printed stickers is easy thanks to our relationships with sustainable paper product manufacturers and use of soy-based inks. For your peace of mind, each and every one of our high-quality stickers is fully biodegradable.

Available in a wide variety of shapes, colours and bespoke designs, this is a simple sticker swap that can help you lower your impact on the environment and show your customers that you’re committed to eco-friendly packaging practices.
