Packaging your products effectively lets you solidify your brand, entice potential customers, and keep your products safe when they sit on a store shelf. But you also know that people just throw away product packaging, so it can create a lot of waste.

Why Cardboard Packaging is Good for the Environment

If you’re looking for an eco-friendly way to package your products, we highly recommend cardboard packaging. Here’s why we suggest cardboard packaging if you want a greener way to package your products:

  • It’s biodegradable—Most carboard materials naturally degrade within one year or less. For this reason, you can feel good about using cardboard packaging because if it gets thrown away, it will degrade naturally in the environment.
  • It’s recyclable—You probably know that you can recycle cardboard, and the same goes for cardboard packaging. You can even include reminders to recycle your cardboard packaging on your product, so that consumers will remember to throw the packaging in the recycling bin instead of the trash.
  • It’s durable—Not only is cardboard packaging recyclable and biodegradable, but it’s also extremely durable. This way, you don’t have to sacrifice your packaging being eco-friendly at the expense of adequately protecting your products.

On top of all these benefits, cardboard packaging is also a cost-effective way to package your products. If you’re interested in using cardboard to package your products, but need help developing a great design, contact us at Co-Pak Packaging Corporation today.
