A plastic-free future is possible to achieve, now more than ever, as more companies pledge to commit to 100% sustainable packaging by 2025. Once belonging to a niche market of conscious consumers voicing out their advocacy for sustainability in retail, this growing movement is driving major industries to support, transform and adopt environmentally friendly packaging solutions in their business strategies to reduce environmental impact and help create a healthier future.
More than 75 countries are now fully or partially banning single-use plastics. According to Statista, the majority of the countries in Europe are charging a fee to limit plastic bag use. In Asia, plastic waste mismanagement continues to be a challenge. However, sustainability concerns and willingness to pay for sustainable packaging by consumers is higher compared to Europe and the United States.
As part of the growing businesses that proactively supports sustainable packaging solutions, Evolooption is here to help your business get started with eco-friendly packaging. Here’s how it can help your business increase profit while saving the planet:
- FMCG products with eco-friendly packaging can increase sales.
According to a survey by Packaging Strategies, 37% of marketing professionals found that the use of environmentally friendly packaging can help boost sales as more and more consumers are becoming aware and learning to use their purchasing power to reduce their carbon footprint. Moreover, 92% of consumers trust brands that are committed to environmental causes. A company’s commitment to sustainability gains a customer’s trust when they see that their core values are aligned with the business.
Evolooption provides specialised sustainable packaging solutions for F&B, agricultural and aquaculture industries, and more from startups to large enterprises.
- Consumers are demanding for more compostable packaging.
In 2022, the global biodegradable packaging materials market is estimated at $88 billion. Consumers are demanding for more green packaging that reduces their carbon footprint and waste disposal. A recent survey in Europe revealed that 83% of consumers prefer food packaging to be made of compostable materials. Most sustainable packaging solutions are made from bio-based or plant-based materials such as corn, cooking oil, algae, soybeans and more to reduce the dependence on fossil fuel.
Evolooption’s wide-range of products are made from compostable materials that can be used for worm farms and the bokashi system. They’ll break down and leave without a trace in 3-6 months through these methods.
- Environmentally friendly packaging is versatile.
Sustainable packaging has the same use as traditional packaging but with greater performance– tensile strength, tear resistance, permeability, degradability and solubility. Additionally, the materials and process in producing biodegradable packaging solutions are more creative and optimises the use of renewable materials.
Evolooption’s biodegradable bags are certified to EN13432, AS4736 and AS5810 industrial standards. They are made to withstand the rigorous use of businesses and consumers.
- Sustainable packaging is aligned with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
Sustainable packaging addresses UN’s SGD #12: Ensure Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns. If consumers and industries continue to use harmful plastics, researchers and scientists believe that certain seabirds and marine animals will become extinct in 50 years. Chemical and hormonal effects from plastics will continue to harm our bodies, air and water systems. When the global population reaches 9.6 billion in 50 years, we will need at least three planets to provide the natural resources to sustain current human lifestyles.
Evolooption is inspired to create a world with less waste by advocating for environmentally friendly packaging solutions. We aim to enable the circular economy and influence others to help close the loop. Our work today will greatly benefit the planet for future generations.
Evolooption is a Singapore-owned company that is committed to help the environment and shape a better future by providing biodegradable e-commerce and supply chain packaging solutions for large enterprises and small start-ups.
