Redesigning Packaging Sustainably While Maintaining Performance
The packaging industry’s current focus on sustainability is reinforced by consumers, brands, government regulators and nongovernmental organizations alike.
To achieve sustainability goals of reducing plastic and increasing recyclability while upholding performance standards, brands must redesign their packaging structures. Suppliers like Sun Chemical are using innovative technologies to redesign inks, coatings and adhesives in a way that allows brands to feel confident they can transition to new sustainable packaging structures, while still maintaining performance.
Join Jim and Rick to hear why four redesign tactics—mono-web, washable/recyclable, compostable and biorenewable—are integral to creating eco-friendly products that maintain efficacy.
