The skincare industry has been growing rapidly in recent years, with more and more consumers becoming conscious about the ingredients they put on their skin and the impact their choices have on the environment. As a result, there is a growing demand for sustainable packaging solutions that minimize the industry's environmental impact. In this article, we will explore some of the sustainable packaging options that Twincraft can offer to our customers.
We’re able to accommodate a variety of packaging solutions that speak to sustainability. To get the process started, it’s important for the brand to identify what claims they are looking to meet before selecting the best option for their product. Bar soap is an excellent option for those looking to reduce waste. Twincraft has multiple options for packaging bar soaps, including folding cartons, paper wrap, and packaging that is made from post-consumer waste. Many of our bar soap packaging options are either fully recyclable or made from recycled materials.
When it comes to skincare, there are many ways that we can bring sustainability into the story. Aluminum and glass packaging are two great options that can be easily recycled after use. However, these materials can be expensive. If the cost of aluminum or glass packaging is prohibitive, there are still other ways to approach sustainability. If plastic packaging is the appropriate option for your brand, plastic made from post-consumer waste can be used, as opposed to virgin plastic. Refillable packaging is also an option that can either reduce or eliminate plastic packaging. Many brands will choose to package their products in a glass or aluminum component, which then holds a disposable package containing the formula that is repurchased.
An important thing to note when it comes to sustainable packaging is that recyclability varies by location, so certain types of packaging may be recyclable in some areas but not others. It is vital that the brand educates its customers on the appropriate way to recycle their packaging, including which pieces of the packaging are indeed recyclable, if they need to be separated beforehand, and the location where they can be discarded. Luckily, there are many resources available to help consumers with recycling their packaging once they’ve finished a product. How2Recycle is an excellent resource that helps consumers understand how to recycle packaging. Brands can use How2Recycle to provide consumers with consistent recycling information on the product, and people are free to visit the website, How2Recycle.info, to better understand what the label means and any steps they need to take in order to recycle the product appropriately.
