As global warming becomes prevalent, awareness grows around the damaging and long-lasting environmental effects of excessive waste. Accordingly, industry best practice product packaging & shipping trends are transforming rapidly. Historically packaging and shipping was the science of filling voids in boxes, cushioning and protecting products whilst on route to their new home. Whilst sturdy, secure packaging to prevent products from breaking during shipping is vital, the focus has now shifted to include limiting waste, reducing carbon footprints and protecting the environment. In the past, businesses have invested their funds and focus primarily towards how to prolong the shelf life of products, creating a sophisticated and unique design to stand out from the crowd to attract more attention, target audiences, sourcing materials, what is the best size for each type of product to be packaged. Today, environmental impact has gained agenda weighing in the boardroom; consequently, new packaging trends are emerging as our current generation of consumers environmental awareness evolves.
