30 Eco-Friendly Packaging Examples

From Plastic-Free Water Bottles to Paper-Based Beer Packaging

— May 2, 2020 — Eco
These eco-friendly packaging innovations range from plastic-free water bottles to paper-based beer packaging.

Standouts include CHOOSE Hand Soap's biodegradable packaging that is made from recycled newspapers. The packaging is 100% biodegradable and plastic-free while the soap product inside is free from toxins and harsh chemicals.

Beer brand Grolsch's Smurfit Kappa TopClip packaging is another notable example that replaces plastic shrink wrap. Targeting sustainable consumers, the brand opts for a packaging solution that is made from renewable and biodegradable paper with a goal of of eliminating up to 100,000 kilograms of plastic annually within the Netherlands.

The Coveris 'RecyclaLite' recyclable sandwich packaging and Eco-Products' sustainable takeout containers round off this list and speak to consumers' growing desire for waste-conscious food and beverage packaging with a minimal environmental impact.
