Sustainable E-commerce Packaging

Sustainable e-commerce packaging is packaging that is manufactured from material that is sustainably sourced so is more environmentally friendly. There are six different types of sustainable packaging that can be used for e-commerce.

  1. FSC® Certified eCommerce Packaging: FSC certified packaging is packaging that is certified by the FSC chain of custody, this ensures that the material it is made from is sourced from sustainably managed forests.

  2. Recycled Packaging: All recycled ecommerce packaging is sustainable as it uses recycled fibre in the manufacturing process.

  3. Starch based plastic e-Commerce packaging: Using starch based plastics means the plastics used are from plant starch rather than oil based plastics. Plant starch can be grown so is a renewable source, much more sustainable than oil based.

  4. UK Manufactured Packaging: eCommerce packaging that is manufactured in the UK is more sustainable because of the lower carbon footprint due to less transport involved in the supply chain.

  5. Reusable eCommerce Packaging: Using reusable designs mean your packaging can be repurposed for a future life, it is useful for something else so doesn't need to be thrown away or recycled to be used again.

  6. Recyclable eCommerce Packaging: Packaging that can be recycled after it's intended purpose can reappear as ecommerce packaging again and again through the paper recycling system!

Yes ecommerce packaging can be personalised with your logos, brand messages, and brand colours.

You need to keep in mind though that printing your logo onto packaging will incur setup costs.

How much should I expect to have to pay for Printing Setup Costs?

Giving costs on printing setup is very difficult because it depends very much on what type of box it is and what area the box covers. There are also other factors such as the detail in the print and what printing process/machine route is being used. However, most simple prints and cost effective machine routes you should expect to pay somewhere between £150 - £400 per printing plate. Each different colour you need to have printed will need a seperate printing plate, but multiple printing plate are usually more cost-effective.
