This is actually something that the green-minded customers are going to ask. The answer is yes, but in most cases, you’ll notice that it’s vaguer and non-committal, especially for designs. In many cases, the truth is that there are many different ways to look at the greenness of a product packaging, and you may also wonder how you can create more sustainable packaging.
The truth is, green packaging is a perspective. Some people look at packaging from a source perspective, how much recycled content there is, and what the source of this. Post-consumer waste is much greener than post-production waste and is better than the virgin material.
But some are more concerned about packaging in terms of how easy it is to be reused and disposed or recycled in a sense. As most know, paper packaging is typically easier to recycle than the plastic based counterparts, but it also depends on the type of packaging and the printed and laminating circumstances.
But, you can enhance the customer experience, and it doesn’t even need to be more complicated. You should know that overdesigning these shipping boxes will make it less eco-friendly in most castes. Costly finishes will have a negative impact in terms of recyclability, so you shouldn’t try to use them. Instead, use screens, printed colors, and good substrates in order to make this look better. You can’ create a good-looking print or a cheap r substandard board, and you don’t even need to make it expensive, just be consistent.
Most of the time a white side isn’t totally recycled content. It typically is virgin paper, but the problem is that it isn’t as green. It does have a green benefit, but the brown board is also less expensive. The darker colors are good, and they typically are much better is n terms of greenness, and material costs as well.
Brown does arrive looking better too, and it also prevents the dirtiness as well.
So yes, while some might be into the whiter exterior, there are a few disadvantages, including how recyclable it is, and also how much it costs, and how the outside looks. The inside typically does look better too. You may though, want to create a better flood coat printing, and that’s done on a white surface rather than the brown one, since there is a difference in the colors that might happen, and it can reflect shade variance, so you’ll want to put a solid color over the board. Reverse packaging is easier, and it creates a white copy that does pop. You may start to realize that printing items in white ink does look good, but it does have some disadvantages.
The truth is, if you’re looking to save money on packaging and create a greener life, then I do suggest going with the brown box look. it’s better for that, and it does reduce the carbon footprint a little bit better than some of the other alternatives out there.
