Do you know what plastic is made of? A lot of people aren’t aware of the fact that plastic is usually made from chemicals sourced from oil or gas. That’s right, plastic’s main ingredients are fossil fuels. Plastic is not just harmful because it doesn’t biodegrade: The process of extracting these fossil fuels is also detrimental to the planet. And yet, plastic products are commonly found in everyday objects, in grocery store packaging and health care products, and there are even microplastics found in food. Not only is plastic made of toxic, chemical substances, but it’s also creating a lot of waste on Earth.
That’s why Earthwise Packaging has created an alternative. Sustainability is at the forefront with their bioplastic and renewable packaging. With containers and jars made from sugarcane, Earthwise Packaging is prioritizing carbon neutral and plant-based alternatives to fossil-fuel plastics. Below, you’ll find a few of the industries that could use Earthwise Packaging.
The Beauty Industry
The cosmetics industry has resulted in nearly 50 billion dollars’ worth of revenue just in the last year. Can you imagine how much plastic has been used for beauty products alone? It’s one of the top offenders when it comes to creating waste, which is why this industry could really benefit from using Earthwise Packaging. With eco-friendly containers, companies can choose sustainable plastic that will biodegrade as opposed to fossil fuel products. There are appropriate units for eye shadow, lip balms, and cheek products. More and more customers are choosing to support independent brands that value sustainability.
The CBD Industry
With how quickly this market is growing, CBD is proving that it’s clearly in its own category. When it comes to dietary supplements, there’s no better way to demonstrate wellness than Earthwise Packaging. Their bioplastic containers can contain anything from capsules to chews or even gummies and tablets. The renewable HDPE bioplastic is extracted from sugar in sugarcane stalks, which requires less carbon than real plastic materials. Plus, the containers come with tight seals, which keep CBD products fresh and well preserved in the packaging.
The Health Care Industry
From dental supplies to pharmaceutical products, there are plenty of markets within the health care industry that could use renewable packaging. When it comes to medication, it’s crucial to have sterile, safe containers. But why should your medicine be packaged in jars and containers made of toxic chemicals and fossil fuels? With plant-based ingredients, the pharmaceutical industry could practice what they preach in terms of health and wellness, not just for humans but also for the planet. It’s time to prioritize green packaging in the field of medicine, from jars and tubes to vials and bottles.
The Food Industry
Whether it’s dry or liquid foods, Earthwise Packaging has solutions for your products. Their food packaging is already FDA-approved, so you can use them to store anything from sauces and condiments to spices and pet food. Use sugarcane-based jars and tubs for your perfect hot sauce blend or your company’s new line of baking mixes. Know that your food products are stored in airtight and watertight packaging that is nontoxic and safe. While glass food storage is common, you won’t have to worry about cracking or shattering in transit when you opt for high-quality bioplastic instead.
Earthwise Packaging boasts over 30 years of experience in manufacturing and protecting your products while also prioritizing sustainability. Not only does choosing their materials help you reduce your carbon footprint, but the lightweight units also help reduce shipping costs. All of their bioplastic products are 100 percent recyclable, and the food storage units are FDA-approved. You can count on them to deliver renewable solutions that are all made in the USA. It’s time to make the switch to environmentally sustainable packaging both for your benefit and the Earth.
