An Insight Into Eco Friendly Industries of Packaging
Turning green today isn't just a fad popularized by celebrities. It's rather a step taken positively to initiate a revolutionary impression on the environment. You can imagine how going green revolution has immersed in us with the fact even packaging supplies today are environmental friendly. According to Jim W Johnson, 'packaging supplies are used in absolutely everything and as soon as they have been used, they become trash, with a huge impact on the environment. Luckily, now, there are eco-friendly materials to make packaging. Governments are actively supporting this by subsidizing greener products and manufacturing processes. Making packaging materials out of recycled materials is an important step, as is ensuring that the materials can be recycled again after they have been used.'
A large portion of population today has stopped using materials that are fatal to environment. In this regard, all types of materials in the industry of packaging supplies are required to be made of eco friendly materials. All types of supplies and products are created by natural materials which may help in reducing the negative impact on environment. Environmental Technologies Action Plan has set eco friendly guidelines that are being followed by the industries of packaging supplies.
As written by Johnson in his articles, ' new ideas are developed on a daily basis and they include such innovative ideas as using recycled materials, preferably 100% recycled; using sustainable materials such as corn, soya, bamboo and cotton; using materials that have been organically farmed such as organic corn or organic bamboo; using materials that are biodegradable like unbleached paper and clam shells; using materials that can be recycled after use such as corrugated cardboard paper and glass; using reusable products such as glass bottles; and being fully energy-efficient throughout the full manufacturing process, for example by powering the factories with solar or wind power and using materials that reduce the carbon footprint. Packaging materials with the biggest environmental impact are, of course, polystyrene packing peanuts. These are being replaced more and more with biodegradable starch based packing peanuts, recycled papers and other green packing materials.'
However the best part is the business have now started to acknowledge the importance going green. They are actively involved in the process to be a part of a cause supported by the global firms. Many industries in the world are not just creating those eco friendly products but they are also ensuring ways to make their staff aware of the programs.
It's highly believed that the management is only motivated by the examples. By setting the examples and motivating them to go green, the staff actually gets into the process of strategizing the new ideas and things that are eco friendly.
With the help of above discussions, it's true that how the world of packaging supplies is evolving to a new phase and revolutions that still has to go beyond our imagination.
