The future of packaging is paper.
Are you looking for an environmentally sustainable and cost-effective way to package your products? Well, look no further than paper packaging! Made from renewable resources our recyclable paper packaging offers a range of advantages over traditional packaging materials. Whether you're a small business or a large corporation, switching to paper packaging helps you reduce your environmental impact, improve your bottom line, and meet the growing demand for sustainable products.
Read on to learn more about the many advantages of paper packaging, and why it's the smart choice for businesses looking to build a more sustainable future.
1. Renewable and sustainable
The biomass of the woody tissue in trees is made mostly of cellulose, the most abundant organic biomolecule on Earth. Paper is made from cellulose and is therefore a fully renewable raw material.
2. Recyclable and recycled
Paper is recyclable which has led to it being widely used and well-collected. Overall, the recycling rate in Europe is now already above 80%. Depending on the end use, cellulose fibers from waste paper can be reused up to 25 times.
3. Minimal waste
Paper is biodegradable by nature, which means it decomposes in water and soil within a short time – making it the perfect solution when collection isn’t always reliable.
4. Regulatory compliance
Many governments around the world are implementing regulations and policies to promote sustainable packaging. Switching to paper packaging helps companies to comply with these regulations and avoid potential fines or penalties.
5. A natural carbon sink
Plants and trees chemically bind a lot of CO2, which they need for their growth, which means they are a natural carbon sink. As long as you circulate (recycle) paper packaging, this CO2 is captured and not released to the atmosphere.
6. Meets consumer expectations
There is a growing consumer demand for sustainable products and packaging materials. Switching to paper packaging can help companies meet this demand and gain a competitive edge in the market.
7. Enhance your image
By choosing paper packaging, companies can create a positive and distinctive brand image that resonates with their target audience. This can help to differentiate a business from its competitors and attract new customers.
Paper packaging can be used for a wide range of products and applications, from food packaging to shipping boxes and retail bags. This versatility makes it a practical option for companies looking for a transition to more sustainable packaging materials.
9. Support healthy forest growth
The demand for paper packaging has put a focus on sustainable forest management and growth. Scandinavian and Central European countries are well-renowned for forestry practices that not only preserve overall forest coverage but also promote biodiversity, while providing high yields.
The material you select to package your goods speaks volumes about your brand vision and product quality.
We need to transform towards a circular economy for packaging
The journey to a more sustainable future goes far beyond our packaging choices. But as packaging is often the first interaction between consumers and businesses, it is a critical element that can make a lasting impression on both consumer perceptions and the environment. The material you select to package your goods speaks volumes about your brand vision and the quality of your product.
Engage consumers in the journey towards circularity and sustainability
Research shows that consumers are increasingly prioritizing sustainability when purchasing products. Many consumers may prefer paper packaging due to its perceived environmental advantages, such as being renewable, biodegradable, and recyclable. Additionally, some consumers may find paper packaging more aesthetically pleasing or feel that it provides a more authentic or natural appearance. Packaging affects consumers' perceptions of a brand!

The market for sustainable packaging is currently growing at super speed. This is due to many regulatory changes such as single-use plastic bans, plastic taxes, recyclability targets, and carbon neutrality goals. These changes create a huge incentive and opportunity for companies to switch to more sustainable packaging options. With paper packaging, companies can demonstrate their commitment to sustainability, reduce their environmental impact, and support their long-term success.
Companies that aim to reduce or eliminate their impact on ocean plastic pollution and climate change must consider leveraging paper as a packaging material.
Renewable packaging: inspired by nature
In a circular economy, resources are kept in use for as long as possible, and waste is minimized through recycling and other means. Overall, paper packaging is an important part of the circular economy because it can be reused, recycled, or composted, and it comes from renewable resources. By using and recycling paper packaging responsibly, we can reduce waste and conserve natural resources.
In a circular economy, products are designed with end-of-life in mind. Paper packaging can be designed with recyclability and compostability in mind, making paper packaging easier to recycle and compost.
Designing smart paper that’s more powerful than ever before, yet still affordable, requires innovation at every stage of the process.
