It's no secret that consumers are becoming more concerned about sustainable packaging options. According to the United Nations projects there will be more that 10 billion people living on Earth by the year 2100. The rise of the population means that there will be more demand of supplies and energy.
Roughly about 35% of the packaging materials used in Australia are paper, board (cartons etc.). Another 30% of the packaging market is plastic which includes PET, PVC, polypropylene and polystyrene. Plastics have rapidly gained share from being only 10% of the market in the early 1960s.
Roughly 60% of these packaging materials are recycled. The balance of packaging ends up in landfills where they can take thousands of years to disintegrate completely, releasing toxic harmful gasses in the process.
We have recently seen a shift in the need for more sustainable packaging options from existing and new customers. At Star Stuff Group we pride ourselves on our ability to grow and expand on what we offer, to readily match our clients requirements.
In the next two weeks we will be launching all new sustainable packaging options that are 100% Recyclable and 100% Compostable. To keep up to date with our launch, follow us on Facebook and Instagram for regular updates.
