Eco-friendly, or sustainable packaging, is on the horizon. Luckily, Sunrise has already ahead of the curve on this trend. 

As concerns about the ability to reduce, reuse and recycle increase, the need for companies to utilize earth-friendly principles is rising as well. It's a trend that is pushed by more than just consumer desire. According to Environmental Leader, the market for sustainable packaging will exceed $354 billion by 2027.

What's Driving the Sustainable Packaging Market?

Awareness of environmental issues is definitely one driver for the increase in demand for this type of packaging. But along with that, government regulations are taking effect as well.  The food and beverage industry is seeking out more sustainable packaging, consumers want to feel better about their consumption, and let's be honest: there's limited space for trash on the planet, so we need to figure out a better way to pack things. 

Sunrise makes more than just sustainable packaging. We can also make eco-friendly items, like conference badges and luggage tags. Using soy-based inks on 100% recycled materials with no lamination, these items will have a life beyond single-use. Which is a great look for any organization or conference.

Eco-Friendly Packaging Challenges

While there are many reasons to implement practices that are environmentally friendly, it's not quite as easy as waving a magic wand. Many developing countries lack the resources or infrastructure to implement sustainability. Not to mention the systems that are needed to support recycling, and awareness campaigns to reduce consumption and reuse as possible. 

At Sunrise, we're excited to be part of the solution regarding our eco-friendly options. If you're looking to make the switch to packaging that is recyclable as well as made from recycled materials, you're in the right place. Reach out to our team for more information!
