The Process of Transitioning to Biodegradable Packaging
August 29, 2018
So, you’ve heard about the benefits of switching to sustainable biodegradable packaging for your products and you’re ready to make the leap, but how?
The greatest barrier for businesses to utilizing sustainable packaging technology is simply not knowing where to start. Standard packaging is easier, because it’s currently the norm and what most factories provide by default. We’re happy to tell you that as experienced negotiators with factories across Asia, we are here to seamlessly coordinate the transition to sustainable packaging for you.
Step #1 – Sourcing
The first step is to source the type of packaging you need. Be it boxes, trays, film, or other, we will source it for the best price from our most reliable international sources. We will present options to you in written format for your review.
Step #2 – Development
While you review packaging options, we will develop a combination of your favorites that best fit your needs. The goal is to come up with a sustainable alternative as close to your current packaging as possible.
Step #3 – Design
Our designers will work with you to make sure your new packaging has a look and feel that resonates with your brand. This new design may be identical to your current branding or may exhibit a new eco-friendly tune – it’s up to you!
Step #4 – Coordination
When your packaging is designed and ready to go, we’ll make arrangements to have the disassembled packaging delivered straight to your place of production or packaging department. If your products are produced internationally, your factory is likely already outsourcing packaging production, so it’s generally an easy switch. Ironically, this part that clients worry is going to be too difficult is often the easiest part of the entire process.
Step #5 – Replenishment
We can either arrange a regular replenishment schedule in advance or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org to restock as needed. We prioritize packaging delivery and will respond to all packaging-related queries right away.
