Navigating the numerous eco-friendly packaging choices can be completely overwhelming for a business owner looking to green their packaging.
Fortunately there is a new site Greener Packging Group where green packaging industry leaders come together offering information and resources to anyone looking for more sustainable packaging options.
The site launched in August and is a partnership between five suppliers including Salazar Packaging, the Chicago area company of green packaging expert and Greener Packaging Group founder Dennis Salazar.
His firm is joined by Distant Village Packaging, Nashville Wraps, Eco-Bag Products, Inc., and Globe Guard Products. Through these leading packaging companies, buyers can find packaging products that are fully vetted and more sustainable.
“B2B companies seeking more environmentally-friendly solutions for retail and industrial packaging now have access to an essential resource,” said Salazar.
“Our B2B sustainable packaging directory allows B2B buyers, engineers and operations personnel to find multiple high-quality suppliers all under one roof – saving the time, money and frustration that come along with searching for truly eco-friendly packaging products.”
The on line directory provides easy navigation, with such categories as bags, baskets and containers, boxes, filler and cushioning, films and wraps, stationery, mailers and envelopes, and more. The Green Packaging Group blog introduces visitors to the latest in sustainable packaging solutions and discusses new, simple and effective approaches to eco-friendly packaging.
After launching the site Salazar told SISG, "Traffic on the site has been brisk and we are thrilled with the initial results."
He said visitors to the site are pleased to see companies working together and providing the resource. According to Salazar, many visitors to the site are surprised at the sheer number of green packaging products and options that exist.
Visitors have also found the blog on GPG to be very useful with posts on specific areas of interest to those considering green packaging options.
I've always found the information Dennis posts to be both insightful and valuable especially given the large volume of options available to someone considering greener packaging. Dennis especially recognizes the challenges faced by small business owners who may not have the volume needed to work with the larger eco-packaging companies but still want to green their packaging.
Green Packaging Group provides a number of important resources in one place and I think it will become a useful go to source for green packaging options.
