This is a collaborative post

Let’s face it, if you sell food products, the packaging is important to you. It is not surprising that you have a sizable list of what you want the packaging to accomplish. Your dream list is likely to include the following characteristics:

  • Affordable
  • Versatile
  • Attractive
  • Capable
  • Durable

Your customers are likely going to cast a favorable eye on eco-friendly packaging. You can accomplish all of the above with a mylar bag custom design. To begin with, the mylar material keeps your food product fresh by keeping odors and smells from leaving the packaging while preventing moisture from entering. This will maintain the quality of your product, ensuring the satisfaction of your customers. The high-barrier properties of mylar maintain an airtight environment thus extending the shelf-life of your product. With custom packaging, you also have the option to choose the size and design of the bag that makes the most sense for your product.

What Makes Packaging Eco-Friendly?

There’s a lot that goes into making packaging that is friendly to the planet. Sustainable pouch packaging not only considers the materials that go into a container, but it also takes into account such things as transportation, spoilage, recyclability and more. Sustainable film structures are fully compostable which allows the packaging to be broken down into non-toxic substances. A product that can be recycled diverts waste from the landfills; it also cuts down on greenhouse gas emissions as materials are used over again. Durable packaging that keeps a product fresh also minimizes food spoilage, a significant driver of the world’s carbon footprint. Also, the process of manufacturing packaging can reduce energy use by employing HP digital printers that require less energy. This process results in less wastage of materials, and it benefits your company by allowing you to print and pay for only the packaging you need. Finally, a product in lightweight packaging with little wasted space can be transported for far less cost than glass or other forms of packaging.
