Why is Oko E-packaging an earth-friendly alternative to single-use plastics?
Over the years, buzzwords such as ‘biodegradable,’ ‘compostable,’ ‘eco friendly’ and ‘ecological’ have emerged. These words appear to have taken precedence in the fight against the growing global threat of plastics.
Plant-based biodegradable packaging comes from nature. It is totally decomposable with the help of microorganisms when placed in a composting area because it is free of toxic chemicals and plastic coatings. The global food biodegradable market is being driven by the rising demand for sustainable and recyclable packaging. Advances in biodegradable materials, rising consumer awareness of environmental issues and stringent regulations are also major factors driving the market growth. As a result, biodegradable plastics are poised to replace conventional non biodegradable plastics used as raw materials in packaging.
The crevice of opportunity
E-packaging organizations can take strategic and operational steps to reduce their carbon footprint and increase sustainability when shipping to the end-user.
Due to a lack of time, consumers seek convenience food solutions. Food quality, hygiene and rising health consciousness are driving the eco-friendly packaging market in the food sector. Beverages are typically served in reusable or recyclable containers; food products are also being served in biodegradable packaging, such as paper and paperboards, which is fuelling the food segment’s growth.
Consumption of on-the-go and ready-to-eat meals are increasing because of urbanisation, hectic lifestyle, and high disposable income. Stringent laws and regulations imposed by governments and governing bodies, as well as a shift in consumer preferences to war recyclable and eco-friendly packaging materials, have all contributed to the growth of the eco-friendly food packaging industry. Aside from these factors, packaging downsizing and technological breakthroughs are also propelling the global market.
Environmentally conscious business practices can benefit packaging companies in a variety of ways, and eco-friendly businesses can attract more customers. However, the high cost of recycling, as well as a lack of recycling infrastructure in developing countries, are likely to stymie the market’s growth.
Adopting more environmentally friendly practices in areas such as the supply chain may reduce operational costs while also benefiting the environment. By using earth-friendly packaging, manufacturing companies can embrace sustainable practices. Some options, such as cardboard, paper, and die-cut inserts, can help to save money on supplies while also providing greater flexibility and customization.
