What is sustainable packaging?


Sustainable packaging refers to eco-friendly packaging materials that have a negligible impact on the environment. This ideally should be in both the way they’re produced, and with the way they can be disposed of or reused when they’re no longer needed. You’ll see words such as sustainable, recyclable, and biodegradable used in association with eco-friendly postal packaging.

What’s the difference between sustainable, recyclable and biodegradable?

Being able to define the terms associated with eco-friendly materials for packaging is the key to understanding how they make a difference. 


This refers to the performance of the packaging in general in relation to the environment. Sustainable packaging should have been produced in a way that isn’t harming the planet (such as from recycled materials, and using water based inks), and can be used again, broken down to create something new, or biodegrade safely. 


Recyclable packaging has been produced using materials that can be used again; cardboard is a good example. 


This means that, in the right conditions, the packaging can be broken down naturally when it is no longer needed. This packaging is usually made from plant-based materials, such as wheat. 

Our eco packaging solutions

We’re proud to offer a range of sustainable packaging solutions here at Challenge Packaging. These include:


From double and single wall cardboard boxes to postal boxes, and even triangular tubes, many of our boxes are made with sustainability in mind.


They’re flat, secure, and easy to post; our selection of mailers can also be recycled too. 


Who knew tape could be sustainable? Our paper adhesive tape and gummed paper tape are recyclable examples available from Challenge Packaging.

Pallet edge guards

Protect your goods, and the environment; our pallet edge guards are recyclable and plastic free, but still strong and sturdy. 


Many of the paper packaging options we supply are recyclable; just look for the green leaf on our website. Take our Kraft paper rolls as an example! 

Why is eco-friendly packaging important?

As a society, we’re not going to stop packaging and sending goods across countries, countries and continents, but we only get the one planet. So, the way we do it has to be sustainable; we need to be able to produce packaging without depleting resources and harming our delicate ecosystems. 

Looking for FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certification is an important part of ensuring that the packaging you’re using is sustainable, and it’s a logo you can see on many of our sustainable ecommerce packaging materials.
