What’s the future of packaging industry?

All of the solutions which help the environment thrive and live. The dark days of plastic waste are not over yet, but changes are coming. On the horizon, we can see more care and responsibility.

If you are an e-commerce entrepreneur, a marketer in a big company or a small business – your customers judge you from the moment they see the packaging of your product. So next time you plan your product delivery, consider doing something for the environment and use biodegradable, recyclable cardboard boxes.

Cardboard box usage now

In today’s day and age, cardboard boxes are being used more than ever; from your grocery delivery through to the boxes that you use with your removals to move house. When you order items online, you’re likely to get them in a cardboard box – and the same for when you purchase an appliance in store. We know that a large portion of the world’s logistics and shipping happens in cardboard which is only set to increase as more products flood the online market.

Looking at a companies like Amazon, flipkart, nykaa etc though, it’s possible to see that smarter cardboard box use – and custom packaging for certain items – could do a lot to alleviate the strain that is being placed on waste disposal facilities around the world. These e commerce companies are the ‘leading the charge’ in setting corrugated packaging for online retail.

From looking at the online shopping industry and the packaging industry in general, we have these takeaway points:

  • Using cardboard for packaging is great – but it’s important to be smart in how you are using it – would a smaller box or a custom box save you money in the short term?
  • Consider how your products are shipped – do you need to use part boxes as a smarter way to bulk ship items?

Cardboard box usage in the future

We predict that there will be shifts in terms of how products are shipped and packed in the future with developments in packaging and eco-friendly solutions. Remember that only a couple of decades ago no one knew or cared about global warming or pollution and we look back on that time with horror.

Now we know that products shipped in cardboard are a most positive choice due to the fact that they biodegrade and are easily reused. It’s important to consider the way in which your customers view your business if you are still using plastics; the use of cardboard shows that you are environmentally conscious, and this can have an impact on your overall brand.
