As the world shifts towards more sustainable living, more and more brands in cosmetics, personal care products, etc. have been rapidly evolving to meet this demand. In response to the growing concern about plastic’s environmental impact, we are now looking for ways to make more products more sustainable.
In recent years, a number of sustainable packaging trends have emerged that are helping our related industries reduce their environmental footprint. Here are some of the most promising trends we’re seeing in the industry today:
1. Recycled Plastic: As the demand for recycled plastic has grown, many plastic bottle manufacturers have begun to use recycled plastic in their bottles. This helps to reduce the amount of virgin plastic needed to make the bottles. In addition, using recycled plastic can help to reduce the amount of plastic waste that ends up in landfills and the ocean.
2. Bioplastics: Bioplastics are made from renewable sources such as corn or sugarcane, and they can be used to create plastic bottles that are just as durable as those made from traditional plastics. Bioplastics also require less energy to produce, leading to lower carbon emissions.
3. Plant-Based Plastic Additives: Plant-based plastic additives are being used to make plastic bottles more sustainable. These additives can help to reduce the amount of energy needed to produce the bottles, as well as make them more biodegradable.
4. Reduced Packaging: Many plastic bottle manufacturers are now using lighter packaging options that require less material and energy to produce. This not only helps to reduce the environmental impact, but it can also help to reduce costs for the manufacturer and the end consumer.
