Ecological packaging is packaging that optimally uses the available materials and minimizes the impact of production on the environment throughout its life cycle. An example of such packaging is corrugated cardboard, which can be obtained during the processing process up to 80% of the pulp in the form of waste paper.
The current market standards and social trends mean that natural and ecological products are highly promoted. They are distinguished by 100% recycled materials. Thanks to the use of recyclable materials, we do not waste valuable resources, and thanks to the use of renewable resources, we make sure that they do not pose a burden to the environment because the material decomposes much faster than in the case of plastic packaging.
Multiple reuse of packaging is highly recommended. Thanks to this, we manage the limited amount of naturally available primary raw materials even better, reduce capital and energy consumption in obtaining raw materials, and do not accumulate excessive amounts of waste.
Corrugated cardboard packaging is experiencing a renaissance. After decades of admiration for plastic packaging, highly developed and informed societies have begun a return to packaging with a low environmental impact. Such products are cardboard packaging, which is biodegradable, and their production and subsequent recycling leave a small carbon footprint.
More and more people are interested in ecology and climate protection. In order to meet these trends, producers of corrugated cardboard packaging try to make their packaging environmentally friendly and ensure that the raw materials for their production are obtained in a way that does not affect the biological wealth and structure of forests.
