Packaging Waste

Did you know that as part of our service to you, we can provide a free of charge report on the packaging you have purchased from us in the last year? Our report contains all the details and information you will need to be able to complete your packaging waste report.

There is now a legal obligation on all UK businesses, that produce or use packaging, to ensure that a percentage of their packaging is recycled. More than 10 million tonnes of packaging waste is generated each year in the UK, 6 million tonnes of which can be potentially recycled.

‘Producer Responsibility Law’ is in place to make sure that businesses who manufacture, import or sell products are responsible for them once they become waste. This law encourages minimisation and recycling of all waste.
If your company has an annual turnover of more than £2 million and handles more than 50 tonnes of packaging a year, you must meet the producer obligations under the packaging regulations. Your business also has an obligation to recycle if you own the packaging and supply it to others, or if you import packaging.

If you are a manufacturer or seller who uses packaging in large volumes, you must get to know the legal position on recycling, you could be prosecuted and fined for non-compliance.

If you need any help on packaging waste regulations, contact Packaging Supplies, or alternatively you can find out more about your legal responsibilities on the Environment Agency website here.

Environmental Benefits of Cardboard Boxes

With the growing concern over the plastic packaging industry and the effect on our environment, we thought it prudent to highlight the environmental benefits of our cardboard boxes and the other cardboard packaging we have available.

As well as offering cost effective packaging solutions to many industries for storage, distribution and shelf ready packaging, the environmental benefits stem from a use of recycled materials and recyclable content.

At Packaging Supplies our cardboard is made from 80% recycled materials and 20% wood pulp from sustainable forest sources.

As well as the cardboard material being environmentally beneficial, we like our factories to minimise wastage by cutting all our cardboard boxes, trays and packs in the best way possible, so as to ensure waste is kept to a minimum.

When printing flexographically, an environmentally friendly water-based ink is used to add text, logo’s and images to your cardboard boxes.

Furthermore, when packaging is designed specifically around your product, it usually negates the need to add extra protective packaging, such as bubble wrap or packing chips. Therefore, cutting down on the landfill waste even more.

If you would like a quotation on bespoke cardboard packaging whether it be cardboard boxes, shipping boxes, cardboard dividers or fittings, postal boxes or cardboard trays, please get in touch with us.

Alternatively, you can follow the link for our stock packaging lines available through our online shop: https://www.pack-supplies.co.uk/shop/1/small-and-large-cardboard-boxes/

The end user also has a responsibility to dispose of all cardboard materials and recycle them in the appropriate way. Companies that produce a large amount of packaging waste will need to follow the government regulations. To find out if this applies to you please see follow link https://www.gov.uk/guidance/packaging-producer-responsibilities

Product Packaging Trends 2018

As we know, packaging design is evolving, particularly within the retail and e-commerce sectors. In store your product needs to stand out. It should reflect your brand personality and what better way to do this than through the product packaging. Online retailers also now recognise the importance of good packaging design and are striving to create a striking first and a positive lasting impression with the unboxing experience. The result in both cases is an enhanced shopping experience for the consumer, which in turn drives product sales upwards.

With so many ways to print your product packaging, combined with a myriad of different substrates to choose from, we have delved into our archives and scoured the web for images of inspiring packaging designs that we think will be on trend for 2018.
