At Maxipos we are passionate about the environment and, as a packaging supplier we have to consider the impact we have on our planet. We have a responsibility to make sure we source eco-friendly and sustainable materials as well as educating our clients and recommending the most environmentally conscious packaging solutions for their needs. We are continuously searching the market to identify the leading factories that are at the forefront of supplying eco-friendly materials in packaging, print and branded merchandise. As we don’t rely upon just one factory, we have the flexibility to move production to the most suitable factory that meets our client’s requirements, whether it is for responsibly sourced paper, recycled plastic or anything in between. Ultimately, the final material specifications are decided by our clients after careful consideration and discussions with us, but our aim is to always offer an eco-friendly option if one has not already been considered.
If you have any specific requirements or would like to know more about your options of eco-friendly materials let us know!
Options to consider when going eco-friendly:
Many of our clients are increasingly questioning the environmental impact of the materials and packaging that they use for their products. However, information on sustainable and eco-friendly solutions is vast and not always as straightforward as one would hope.
To help navigate this complex topic, we have summarised the most important information to consider regarding eco-friendly materials to make it easier for you.
Consider using inks that are based on water, soy or vegetable oil.
Certified Paper & Board
Help protect our forests and use certified and responsibly sourced wood pulp.
Eliminate the use of single-use plastic in your packaging and use plastic-free packaging.
Incorporate recycled materials in your packaging.
Check if you can use material that breaks into natural components under the right conditions.
Consider material that degrades within a specified timeframe.
Reduce Carbon Footprint
The closer the factory, the lower the carbon footprint.
Extend the life of the materials used by making sure they are recyclable.
Sourcing responsibly by considering the environmental, societal and economic impacts of our supply chain.
