How to choose sustainable packaging for your product

Saloni Doshi Saturday, 1 December 2018

This is a 20 minute Lesson from eco-friendly packaging brand EcoEnclose. They are a company passionate about bringing innovation and eco-solutions to shipping supplies, by developing packaging made with as much recycled content as is humanly possible, and that can be easily recycled into new packaging in its next life. We talk to their co-owner, Saloni Doshi, about eco-packaging and get the lowdown on what precisely eco-friendly packaging is, and the argument for recyclable packaging versus biodegradable packaging.

In this Lesson, you will learn:

  • What is eco-friendly packaging?
  • Biodegradable plastic packaging: what are the different types of bioplastic, how do product biodegrade and some common misconceptions?
  • Biodegradable Packaging vs Recyclable Plastic Packaging.
  • Choosing your eco-friendly packaging.

  • Packaging made from Fabric

    with Melissa Tatko

    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.
