BKT Are Your Sustainable Packaging Partner

Cardboard Sustainability

The 1970's was the decade that saw the beginning of the environmental movement.  It was also the year of the first Earth Day celebration and the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency.

Consumers are encouraged to take responsibility to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle, taking into consideration where their packaging ends up, recycled or in landfill.

However, why should the responsibility of being sustainable be just down to the consumer?

The world of packaging is ever-changing, adapting to new technology, marketing trends and consumer demands and these have been heightened by an increasing focus on the sustainability of paper and cardboard packaging. 

BKT encourage brands to make more justifiable choices enabling both the brands, and the consumers, to work together to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.

Branded packaging has a huge impact on the environment, not only when being produced but also during transportation.  The majority of our carboard packaging can be 'crash' packed flat, using less space for storage and larger quantities for transference.

By thinking carefully about the packaging they use, brands have the opportunity to reduce their carbon footprints.

Once a brand has implemented a more environmentally friendly form of packaging, it is up to the consumer to consider the sustainability of the packaging they purchase.  Choosing packaging that can be reused is a simple way to reduce the amount of single-use packaging that ends up in landfill sites.

Recycling is something that both brands and consumers should consider when choosing packaging types. 

For brands - it's vital to design packaging that can be sustainably disposed of and make this obvious to consumers.

For consumers - it's important to take note of the packaging material and how best to dispose of it whether at home or at the office.



Sustainability World in Hand

At BKT we understand the detrimental impact that packaging can have on the environment.  We design our packaging with sustainability in mind, providing brands and consumers with numerous environmentally friendly solutions.

Our sustainably sourced paper packaging is also well aligned with the objectives of the United Nations Sustainability Goals.
