  1. Clean and simple packaging:  Less is more. On the matter of this trend, products are designed in a simple way, with less printing on the package surface and with less packaging material used. Therefore it is not necessary to use oversize packaging to emphasize the product.
  2. Corrugated cardboard. The usage of corrugated cardboard is high in demand. It is 100% recyclable, biodegradable and of course, reusable. Packaging products such as eco-sleeves or corrugated paper-padded envelopes are perfect examples.

3. Biodegradable materials. Paper and cardboard are a great alternative for any kind of packaging. What is their benefit? When they are thrown away, they break down and return back to nature. At the same time, biodegradable materials promote eco-sustainability.
