Better Packaging Choices

To package your “widget” in the most up-to-date, attractive, appealing packaging, consider these five factors:

• Packaging sustainability

• How e-commerce might affect your packaging

• Flexible packaging

• Plastic packaging advancements,/p>

•Packaging waste challenges

In keeping with these five product packaging design and usability situations, the following resources may help you. Scan through these ideas to help stimulate new thought for your business’s products:

1. Look for the weakest points about your product’s packages. For example, when shipping your liquid products, think about how secure the seals are on your bottle closures. Design your bottles expecting the unknown to happen. Imagine your bottled products being turned upside down. If it leaks, it’s got packaging sustainability problems. Any weaknesses in your packaging needs to be addressed and fixed before shipping it.

2. How is e-commerce affecting your packaging? Check out Pack Expo trade shows to discover how business stays successful today using the latest innovations for ecommerce situations.

3. Think" green" about your packaging. Sure, plastic is nice when it comes to being a lightweight container for shipping your e-commerce orders. But do you really want to add to the landfill heap of plastics (approximately 129 million tons yearly) with labels showing your company’s non-green product packaging? And let’s not talk about the 10 – 20 million tons of plastic that ends up in the oceans. What is a truly bio-degradable way to package your products?

4. When it comes to getting flexible packaging ideas, check out the Flexible Packaging Association’s annual Flexible Packaging Achievement Awards now in its 62nd year of competition. Just Google them to find out more about how you can incorporate flexible packaging for your products.

5. When it comes to packaging waste challenges, again a great resource would be to attend conferences that specialize in packaging. They have the most up-to-date solutions for all your packaging needs and concerns.
