Flexible Packaging -  a unique and sustainable option

Happy Arbor Day!

Here at SunDance, we’re all about doing our part for the environment. We try to live sustainably. There’s a misconception in the world that we should be shifting away from paper and forest products as climate change looms. However, that kind of thinking is sadly misguided. Trees make oxygen, take in CO2. If climate change is being led by CO2 emissions, we shouldn’t be cutting down trees, right? Well, it’s more complicated than that. We actually have more trees today in the US than 100 years ago, yes, you read that right!

Understanding Recyclable, Biodegradable, and Compostable Packaging

During discussions with current and potential clients, it’s not unusual for brand owners to say they’re looking for Eco-friendly packaging options. In response, we ask the client, “What are your Eco-friendly goals?” Most times, they respond, “I want my packaging to be recyclable.” This answer leads to a deeper discussion about Eco-friendly terms such as recyclable, biodegradable, and compostable in relation to packaging.

In an earlier blog, Recycling, Packaging, and the Environment, we discussed the importance of considering the life cycle of a given type of packaging, especially when clients are looking to reduce landfill waste or create fewer greenhouse gasses. In this post, we’ll analyze Eco-friendly terms and their relationship to packaging options.
