The Importance Of EcoFriendly Packaging Boxes In The Modern World


INSTRUCTIONS

â–° One of the few things that have withstood the test of time and have not only kept their relevance but superseded it are packaging boxes. When things were started being produced on a mass level, the phenomenon of packaging also gained immense popularity. Industrialisation on a global level gave birth to mass production which resulted in retailing and delivering goods in a better and safe manner. Before plastic became dominant all over the world, products like milk, oils, creams were packaged inside glass bottles and jars.

Summary â–°

The glass components required a significant amount of protection. Moreover, small items like nails and bolts also needed to packaged inside certain packaging that would not tear like cloth, making cardboard packaging a very viable solution. The first time cardboard was put to commercial use was at the beginning of the 29th century, approximately 200 years after the Chinese invented it. It was not until the mid-19th century that corrugated appeared on the scene and people started swapping wooden crates with corrugated boxes.

Since then, with the success of science, innovation and technology, many new materials have been produced, some of them were functional, cheap and easy to manufacture yet disastrous for the environment. In a span of less than a century, the climate and the quality of the atmosphere has deteriorated immensely, giving rise to people becoming environmentally conscious. 5


The red alert all over is giving way to eco-friendly practices, wherever they can be implemented. This has also resulted in an increase of the usage of ecofriendly packaging boxes. In today’s age, the environmentally friendliest material available is kraft. Unfamiliar with kraft stock? Do not worry and read down below. We have compiled a list of “tells” that can help you identify kraft and make an informed decision about what packaging material to use.

The appearance:

â–°

At the first look, one of the biggest tells of kraft packaging boxes is that it is brown. Although white kraft is available in the market too, people who would like their boxes to be the greenest can choose the colour brown. White can be obtained too, although the stock will have to be bleached which can somewhat defeat the purpose of choosing an eco-friendly material. The print on the kraft box will not be as fine as it appears on a cardboard box. It can be a little dull and grainy.

Customisations:

Like cardboard, corrugated and other paper stocks, kraft can also very much be manufactured in any box style that a person may choose. Be it a lidded box, 1-2-3 bottom box, tuck end box or any other, kraft can cater to you in the best way.

The feel: â–° When you touch kraft stock, it is firstly coarse. It is not very coarse to cause splinters to cut the skin but when compared to the smooth surface of cardboard, kraft feels tougher. Although kraft can be bent into different shapes and styles, it is however significantly harder than cardboard. Kraft is also said to be exceedingly tear resistant. 10
