One of the top packaging trends of 2013 is definitely the sustainability factor. Using eco-friendly bio-plastic and recyclable cardboard packaging, along with other eco-friendly packaging options, definitely falls in line with most companies’ updated efforts to be more earth-conscious and their mandates to reduce material consumption that end up in landfills.
The majority of the packaging industry has accepted that sustainability is the way to go, and are committed to reducing energy and water consumption, along with improving materials used and the resulting processes. Packaging companies, such as GSC, hope this trend continues into the future to really accelerate the efforts set forth by others to save the world and reduce landfill waste. Not only is this sustainability initiative making packaging more functional, but it’s also appearing much sleeker and smoother and pleasing to the eye. It is a winning combination for everyone.
