Essentials of Sustainable Packaging

The ideal sustainable packaging system is one that can be transformed into a closed loop flow of packaging materials—a system that is economically robust and continually providing benefits throughout its life cycle.

Below is a criteria list for sustainable packaging — Does your company consider the Green 8?

    1. Is the packaging beneficial, safe and healthy for individuals and communities throughout its life cycle?
    2. Does the packaging meet market criteria for performance and cost?
    3. Is the packaging sourced, manufactured, transported, and recycled using renewable energy?
    4. Does the packaging optimize the use of renewable or recycled source materials?
    5. Is the packaging manufactured using clean production technologies and best practices?
    6. Is the packaging made from materials healthy throughout the life cycle?
    7. Is the packaging physically designed to optimize materials and energy?
    8. Is the packaging effectively recovered and utilized in biological and or industrial closed loop circles?
