- Jul 04, 2018 -

One question, can you list up what will make packaging sustainable? You may find many earth-friendly factors could be sustainable. Therefore, there’s actually no strict definition or criteria.  Below let’s talk about factors making eco-friendly packaging.


Obviously, using renewable, recycled, or biodegradable materials is a good way to ‘green’ the packaging. If you could refill lip gloss with a plastic squeeze tube easily, you are being nice to the earth.


Changing the shape of the packaging can also make it more eco-friendly. For example, square packaging. It is said that square packaging has 40 percent less resin than standard round one, and take up less shipping space.


More efficiently packed ultimately means less gas will be needed for transportation.Therefore, lighter packaging can be eco-friendly packaging as well.
