One of the reasons why you should use eco-sustainable packaging is that consumers are becoming more environmentally conscious and aware of the importance of using ecological materials. Therefore, the demand for eco-sustainable packaging is growing and consumers are more likely to pay more for products with a social and environmentally friendly impact.
What are the best substitutes for plastic?
Paper and cardboard are great substitutes for plastic packaging. Paper is easy to reuse, discard and is a natural-based material. It is also easy to recycle, as claims FEFCO – The European Federation of Corrugated Board Manufacturers, that “Paper and board packaging is already a recycling champion, with an 82.1% recycling rate”.
Plastics can also be replaced with bioplastics but in packaging, paper and cardboard are still the best options. Paper or cardboard cannot replace every plastic packaging but it can replace a big amount of unnecessary plastic packaging or other non-sustainable packaging materials.

Why eco-sustainable packaging is important for your company?
Luckily eco-sustainable packaging materials are getting more and more important in various industry sectors. Companies are aware that eco-friendly materials are not only an alternative and an excellent substitute for conventional materials but are also a necessity. The usage of eco-friendly materials will help you to reach the environmental impact goal and increase your corporate social responsibility (CSR). Eco-sustainable packaging gives advantages also from the financial point of view: “we see that corrugated is playing an increasingly important marketing role on store shelves as it can significantly increase the sale of a product”, said FEFCO about corrugated packaging.
