The economy and the environment are at the top of many minds lately. Consumers don’t simply want to save a buck, but they also want to feel like they’re doing some good in the process. Fortunately for secondary packaging manufacturers, a recent focus on sustainability initiatives is delivering cost savings for companies and consumers — all with a reduced environmental impact.
The sustainability trend is encouraging packaging manufacturers to explore solutions that eliminate unnecessary materials while still protecting the value of the product. And with today’s eco-conscious, cost-sensitive consumers, it’s an ideal time for manufacturers to review these options, says Amie Thomas, marketing manager for PakTech, Eugene, Ore.
