43 per cent of UK shoppers are more likely to shop with a rival retailer if they offered a greater range of sustainable delivery options [Research  by YouGov for click and collect provider Doddle]. So it’s maybe time to consider how sustainable your product packaging is. The materials you use for packaging is a key focus area for lowering carbon footprint and instantly gives an impression of the sustainability of your brand - is everything wrapped in plastic? Does it tell the customer on the box what the packaging is made from and how to recycle it?

There is a seismic shift happening just now in the packaging industry with many brands switching materials. Polymailers are being swapped to paper-based mailing bags and boxes, sticky parcel tape to perforated rip off strips and bubble wrap to paper or biodegradable packing peanuts.

But why stop with just changing the materials? Did you know we can also carbon offset the use of papers and boards used in any packaging or promotional marketing project. Working with World Land Trust we can provide a certificate and the WLT logo can be printed on any packaging or marketing. We can also provide FSC approved papers to provide the sustainable solution you require.

This doesn’t need to be a difficult process, just give us a call and we can help you make the sustainable switch.
