Achieving sustainability is not as easy as following a straightforward formula. We talked in an earlier post about the balancing act of cost, performance, and sustainability and how striking that balance is tricky yet attainable.
Success in sustainability is similar.
While we can certainly take steps such as using a reduced amount of higher performance stretch film (See: How To Use Less Stretch Film for Better Sustainability), we’ll find more success in achieving your goals when we move beyond isolating one single factor at a time.
In the video above, we discuss the value of evaluating your whole packaging system rather than isolating single factors like your stretch film or your shrink bundling film. If we can look at the big picture – from your actual product packaging to the way it’s unitized and everything in between – we have the opportunity to find more creative solutions that can yield significant sustainability gains.
If you haven’t been to the Packaging Solution Center in Charlotte, we invite you to come take a tour and see how our scientific approach to end-of-packaging can benefit your operation.
