Sustainability is increasingly important to the average consumer. As awareness of our planet's plight continues to grow, so will the need for well-designed eco-friendly packaging options...
But let’s be honest, sustainable design isn’t always about developing new materials. Often, it's about using what we already have in new and creative ways. That's why we call moulded pulp - the material used to make the humble egg carton - the latest material used in eco-design.
Manufactured using recycled paper and board, molded pulp is a smart, simple and sustainable packaging option for any business looking to minimise its environmental impact. And, while the humble egg carton might not necessarily look like it was part of it, we're sure to elevate this ancient material into something truly eye-catching.
After several years of industry development and technological precipitation, Pulp Molding Aavid has followed the trend and launched an ecological packaging box, which is made of molded pulp from bagasse, bamboo pulp, and recycled cardboard. This packaging solution is the ultimate solution for any brand concerned with both ethics and aesthetics. So what makes molded pulp such a great packaging choice? How did we manage to turn it from zero design to design hero? Let's find out.
it is made of recycled materials
Choosing packaging made from recycled materials consumes far fewer resources than packaging using virgin materials. Not only does it protect trees, it also requires far less water and energy. Packaging made from recycled paper and cardboard can also reduce by-products such as chemical waste by up to 90%. Rest assured, the eco-friendly packaging boxes designed by Pulp Molding Materials are made of recycled cardboard and are chlorine-free.
It is 100% recyclable
Sadly, we live in a world where convenience trumps awareness, which might well explain the "one-time use" mentality that many of us adopt. Brands that want to increase their track record on the planet must think about their product journey from start to finish. While non-recyclable products will spend the rest of their lives in landfills (and probably outlive the people who created them), recyclable packaging can be given new life time and time again.
Research shows that cardboard and paper can often be recycled up to eight times before eventually being recycled because the fibers are too weak. And at this stage, the materials can also be turned into compost, where they break down naturally. Pulp moulded boxes can be recycled and even reused at the end of their useful life. (They are really good!)
When we see a beautiful packaging design, we know it. Our designers are excited to see more and more designs that accurately demonstrate the capabilities of sustainable materials. Thankfully, brown boxes are no longer the only packaging option for eco-friendly brands!
With 285GSM cardboard and fully customizable sleeves, our eco-friendly boxes prove that good design and sustainability are no longer mutually exclusive. Why not discuss with the Aavid team how to add embossed text, stickers and/or labels to create the perfect display or gift box for your brand?
