The most eco-efficient packaging solution

There is a real struggle in finding the ultimate eco-friendly packaging solution. From selecting the right material, which is sustainable; yet still fit for purpose. To the manufacturing process, warehousing, shipping and then waste.

Reusable packaging is certainly one of the three methods used to minimise the environmental impact of your packaging.

Reusable packaging – which is often also referred to as reusable transport items (RTI) – is just as the name suggests. A reusable container or box that will be used time and time again over multiple journeys.

The environmental benefits

Plastic has been proven (by research from the BBC) to be one of the more environmentally friendly methods of packaging. This is due to its low carbon emissions during the manufacturing process and energy consumption levels during recycling. Which are significantly lower than many other packaging materials.

Also, plastic packaging can be reusable. The benefits of multi-trip versus single-trip packaging are tremendous. Involving everything from a reduced carbon footprint, reduced labour costs in sorting recycling, to reduced storage costs and less spoilage of the product.

Reusable packaging, by its very nature is one of the most robust packaging options yet the energy used to produce this form of packaging is minimal.

How reusable packaging works

The material of the reusable packaging is key to its success. It needs to be durable and ideally waterproof, with the view for the packaging to the cleaned between uses. Especially if contaminated with soil, dirt, dust or debris. Reusable packaging should not be confused with 'opportunistic re-use' where a product which is intended for single-use is re-purposed. There should be a clear difference in the packagings intended use, whether this be single or multi-use packaging.
