Around the globe, brand values and consumer expectations are driving more environmentally conscious policies and spending aimed at ameliorating the negative environmental impacts of carbon emissions, material waste, energy consumption and limited resources. While sustainability in the retail space began as just a buzzword, the global pandemic underscored the importance of nature for mental and physical well-being — and how sustainability plays a critical role in protecting it.
Today, it is now essential for brands to align with customer demand for sustainability to remain competitive in the evolving retail space. Shoppers are researching the products they buy and the brands they support — and they’re prepared to make different choices if sustainability is not a priority. In fact, nearly six in 10 consumers say they are willing to change their shopping habits to reduce environmental impact.
As material science and packaging engineering advances, retail brands have more eco-friendly packaging options for a wide range of products at their fingertips than ever before. With retailers increasingly feeling the pressure to reduce their impact on the environment, we are proud to have been utilizing sustainable packaging for our boxes since 2011. Though our partnership with Emerald Brand, we are able to provide the national luxury retailers with whom we work affordable sustainable packaging solutions made from sustainable alternative materials, such as bagasse, wheat, clay, corn and plant starch.
