Going Green With Linwood Raker
5 Reasons To Choose Eco-Friendly Paper Packaging
Make reduce, reuse, recycle your mantra. Remembering the waste hierarchy will help you in every aspect on making your packaging eco-friendlier. Ask yourself questions and be honest with the answers. What will happen to the packaging after its initial use has been completed? How will using a particular packaging material affect on your business’ usage of non-eco-friendly materials? Is the packaging actually recyclable? Is it recyclable in the destination of the product? Will you be able to reuse the packaging at company level? Will the end consumer be able to reuse the packaging on an individual level? If the packaging isn’t recycled, will it biodegrade?
Paper packaging might not be your first thought when it comes to a material that is suitable for a variety of different temperatures and conditions, but if you’re just picturing soggy brown paper bags – think again. At Linwood Raker we have designed and manufacture paper packaging products that are not only eco-friendly but can handle extremes of temperature and have excellent strength properties. The packaging can also reduce the need for oils and fats for increased product lifespan.
Just because its paper doesn’t mean it’s sustainable. Check the sources used by the manufacturer. Eco-minded manufacturers will ensure that their paper packaging is sourced from sustainable sources. At Linwood Raker we manufacture all of our products from natural vegetable, plant materials or virgin pulp, sourced from sustainable resources.
Transportation, warehousing, packing and at-home storage can all take its toll on the packaging of a product. While plastic might seem like the only option to ensure a damage free product with packaging that doesn’t lose its looks, there is an eco-friendly alternative. Linwood Raker’s combine corrugated board with coated paper liners for an eco-friendly plastic-packaging-alternative that is strong, cost-effective, versatile and in most combinations, 100% recyclable.
Consumers have made their voices heard, they’re tired of too much plastic packaging surrounding foods. From plastic wrapped individual oranges to layers of plastic to just get to your ready meal (not to mention the bag you carry it in and the fork you use to eat it) it’s time for a change. Paper packaging again is your answer. At Linwood Raker paper products are designed for direct food contact (keeping things hygienic). There are options for aesthetically and environmentally pleasing bakery, deli, butchery and cheese alternatives to plastic. And you can even have your cake and eat it with paper packaging options that are perfect for your shop’s confectionery counter.
