Sustainability in pharmaceutical packaging
• Continuous progression
What is sustainable packaging?
Packaging that over time reduces its environmental footprint is sustainable packaging. Ingredients, production process and reusability play important roles in this. When using recycled or raw materials that can easily be degraded over time, a significant step has been taken. At Ecobliss we use recycled cardboards for example. But also the adhesive being used to make sure all components are firmly welded together, is water-based in our cold seal technique.
But it doesn’t stop there. By essentially minimizing the production process or making sure energy consumption during the packaging process is reduced to the minimum, the sustainability is enhanced. And by default, a large portion of or packaging solutions stimulate the separation of components after opening the packaging and discard it for recycling. A growing number of packaging solutions don’t need separation anymore at all, because it’s all made from the same source material.
Sustainability awareness in pharma
Recent studies show that consumers tend to prioritize sustainability more and more when making buying decisions. That means that you, as a producer not only need to consider the sustainability of your product but also its packaging. In the years to come, the circular economy becomes more popular for all the obvious reasons. Studies also show that consumers are willing to pay more for products that deliver on sustainability claims. And again, packaging plays an integrate part in this because in essence it’s a temporary means to get products into the hands of the customer.
