A circular economy model, which employs waste management, reuse, recycling and responsible manufacturing, could support the development of new industries and jobs, reducing emissions and increasing the efficient use of natural resources (including energy, water, and materials).

Using the correct packaging for your products will take you in the right direction and Law Print can just do that – helping you on your sustainability journey!

No matter what you make and sell, the first thing your customers see is the packaging.

And, at the moment and probably for the foreseeable, sustainability is high on the agenda of consumers, no matter the product. Therefore, it’s important to factor this into your business when creating or updating the overall strategy. 

Why do we need a circular economy?

A circular economy allows businesses to provide products and services that are less destructive to the environment. Consumers usually agree that plastic can not become part of a circular economy, however, this is not true.

Plastic provides many benefits that are often overlooked, such as preventing food waste by increasing shelf-life. Plastic can have a positive effect within the confines of a circular economy when disposed of properly. 

In order to create a circular economy, it’s imperative that all aspects of your business are streamlined, not just your packaging. 

However, it’s a good place to start. 

Standard plastic packaging is still a big part of a sustainable economy, and we want to help and educate our customers in getting the positive reasons for this across to their end-users.

In a circular economy, products and materials keep circulating in a high-value state of use, through supply chains, for as long as possible which is why standard mixed plastic structures and mono material PE/PE or PP/PP recyclable alternatives can work for your business.

How can I use packaging to help me create a circular economy?
