Packaging made from Fabric
Melissa Tatko is the Head of Business Development for a social enterprise called Re-wrap, who make high-quality cotton products, from tote bags to knot wraps. Re-wrap's products are so durable, they last for decades rather than years, helping to reduce the need for single-use plastic bags, and as a result, waste in general.
A tote bag is an environmentally friendly option in comparison to a plastic bag as it has a longer lifespan for reuse, is made from a renewable resource and can biodegrade. In this Masterclass, we take a look at businesses creating packaging from fabric, such as Re-wrap, and their fantastic, easily accessible alternatives to disposable packaging and bags.
In this Lesson, you will learn:
- The problem with wrapping paper and tissue paper
- Multi-use fabric packaging ideas
- Transparency in production
- The story of Re-wrap
- Essential questions to ask your packaging suppliers
- Where to start on your fabric packaging journey
- Top pieces of advice for eco-brands
