Our eco-friendly packaging solutions

The world of packaging is partially responsible for the waste that has a significant impact on the environment and the planet. Indeed, “between 5 and 12 million tons of plastic flow into our oceans every year.” (Ecolopharm, 2023) That’s why EDR Packaging wants to be part of the solution by offering a range of eco-friendly and reusable packaging solutions to businesses of all sizes. In this article, discover what truly constitutes an eco-friendly packaging solution, along with our selection of bags and packaging products.

What is an environmentally friendly packaging?

To determine if packaging is environmentally friendly, three simple criteria should be considered :

1- Made from recycled materials

Packaging made from recycled materials helps conserve natural resources such as trees, oil, and metals, while contributing to giving a new life to items placed in recycling bins. By using recycled materials, we can reduce our environmental impact.

2- Designed with fewer materials

Packaging can serve multiple purposes, especially in the case of perishable products such as food. Their packaging plays a crucial role in extending their shelf life and preventing waste. However, it’s possible for packaging to be composed of more materials than necessary (overpackaging) or, conversely, not enough materials (underpackaging). Striking the right balance between too much and too little packaging is crucial to limit waste and our environmental impact.

3- Recyclable

Although reusable packaging or bags should be prioritized, it’s not always possible to continue using packaging once the product is consumed. Therefore, this packaging must be recyclable, allowing it to be placed in the recycling bin and given a second life as packaging made from recycled materials.

The paper bags allow better food preservation while reducing the risk of mold due to the paper’s natural ventilation. They are also reusable and recyclable.
