Consumers around the world are increasingly opting for products that do not have a negative impact on the environment, and that are manufactured, sourced, produced, and packaged in a sustainable and ethical way. From cosmetics to food products, electronics, pharmaceuticals, and more, it’s clear that the sustainable packaging is in.



For packaging to be considered ‘green’ or sustainable, it must meet the needs of present generations while simultaneously not compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Essentially, green packaging must function in adherence with current consumer demands and expectations, but should have a reduced environmental impact. When designing and producingsustainable packaging materials, manufacturers must look at the product lifecycle, including disposal or repurposing, and should ensure that the final product will be used in a way that reduces—or even eliminates—the potential for environmental damage or harm. Additionally, the entire supply chain should be examined to make sure that actions, business practices, and methods sat each stage are sustainable and ethically sound. Green packaging products can be recyclable, reusable, or degradable.

Which sustainable packaging materials are most commonly used?

  • 纸/纸板:纸是绿色包装中最常用的材料。不断变化的药品包装法规,包括用条形码以减少错误的单位剂量格式包装,正在推动纸张和纸板细分市场的稳定增长。纸板也大量用于电子商务包装。这种类型的包装可回收可重复使用。

  • Bioplastics:生物塑料是塑料的,这些塑料来自可再生能源,例如蔬菜脂肪,玉米淀粉,小麦纤维甚至土豆。在美国,USDA允许任何至少50%生物的材料称为生物塑料。在某些地区,正在使用农场的玉米和大豆剩余农作物来生产生物塑料。由于全世界的严格环境法规,预计生物塑料的使用将在未来四年内大幅增加。

  • 瓦楞纸板:最瓦楞纸板包装在盒子format and is made from birch or pine tree pulp. These trees can are fast-growing, can thrive in a variety of conditions, and can be harvested in a sustainable way. This type of packaging is both recyclable and reusable. It also requires less energy to create due to the high percentage of recyclable material it already contains.

What does the future of sustainable packaging look like?

在不久的将来,更多的绿色主包装材料are expected to become widely available. For example, bio-based compostable packaging is currently available in the market, but due to its relatively high cost, limited lifespan, and labor-intensive nature, its use remains low for the time being—however, advancements and improvements in this area could make many types of compostable packaging a suitable replacement for polystyrene. This type of packaging is frequently made from mushrooms, which grow around agricultural waste such as corn husks. The mushroom fibres bind the waste together to form a solid shape; this is then dried to halt growth. The final packaging can be composted at a consumer’s home, but cannot be properly re-used.
