One Small Change Creating a Huge Impact on Packaging Waste

Global Packaging by the Numbers
The waste produced by shipping containers on a global level is predicted to increase in the coming years. The amount of harm done to the Earth is extensive when you combine the waste produced by expendable packages with the amount of greenhouse gas emissions released for the creation and transport of these packages. It is becoming increasingly important for companies to consider feasible, reusable options when it comes to packaging materials. Packaging should be reused whenever possible to reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills. Additionally, sturdy alternatives to cardboard and wood such as plastic totes or metal pallets should be adopted to reduce waste and increase the life cycle of packaging material. These types of items can withstand many more uses than items made of more traditional materials. Ultimately, recycling and reusing packaging containers will reduce the amount of time and money expended on traditional, single-use materials.
