Sustainable ESD Packaging Solutions

Sustainability in packaging has been growing in importance as concerns are increasing over packaging waste. With this in mind, it may be time for your business to consider swapping your packaging to a sustainable alternative. Fortunately, there are a range of packaging products available that both protect your products from electrostatic discharge and are sustainable for your business.

In this guide, we will cover the types of sustainable packaging, how they can benefit your business, and the types of sustainable ESD packaging available with Bondline.

Recyclable Packaging

What is recyclable packaging?

Recyclable packaging is a process of reusing materials again and again to make new products. This keeps materials away from landfills for an extended period of time and avoids using new materials. Recyclable materials include paper, glass, card, metal, and certain plastics. However, the most common type of recycled and recyclable packaging material is corrugated cardboard. Corrugated cardboard can be recycled as many as 20 times before the fibres are too short to be able to process. It also requires 75% less energy than using raw materials.

Benefits of using recyclable packaging for your business

There are many reasons why your business should use recyclable packaging for static control. Here are just a few of the benefits of recyclable packaging for both your business and the environment:

  • Waste reduction: One of the biggest advantages of using recycled materials is that it helps to minimise waste. Recycled materials are kept out of landfills for a long period of time.
  • Environmental benefits: Recycling saves energy, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, and conserves natural resources.
  • Brand image and consumer preferences: Recyclable packaging helps to improve your brand image. In addition, customers are more conscious of the brands they buy from, and those that are seen as environmentally responsible are often favoured. Using recyclable packaging can show your customers that you care about sustainability.


Biodegradable Packaging

What is biodegradable packaging?

Biodegradable packaging is a type of packaging that will naturally disintegrate and decompose under any conditions and in an undefined amount of time. This type of packaging is typically made from sustainable sources such as starch, paper, cellulose and soy protein, which can be broken down by microorganisms like bacterial, fungi, and algae over time.

Benefits of switching to biodegradable packaging for your business

Biodegradable packaging offers a solution towards minimising environmental impact, where plastic pollutes rivers and oceans. They are made under manufacturing processes that help reduce energy use and lessen negative environmental impacts.

There are several biodegradable packaging benefits for both your business and the environment, including:

  • Non-toxic and allergen-free: The composition of packaging can be important to some customers and can therefore be a key deciding factor for whether to buy your product. By implementing biodegradable packaging, customers can be assured that your packaging is free of toxins and allergens.
  • Boosts your brand’s image: Eco-friendly packaging solutions enhance the perception of your brand. Your choice of packaging shows your customers your concern for the environment.
  • Reduces your carbon footprint: With biodegradable packaging, your business minimises your carbon footprints.
  • Increases sales: Sustainable packaging is of growing importance to every brand’s identity. With the use of eco-friendly packaging, customers will see that you care for the environment and will consider this every time they make a purchase.
