Why Should You Choose Paper Packaging?

February 26,2022

With the idea of environmental protection rooted in people’s mind, more and more people start to use paper packaging rather than plastic bags, there are ice cream paper cups, paper salad boxes, paper coffee cups and so on. The following are some concrete reasons of why people like paper packaging more.




Sustainable Development


By far, it is one of the most important reasons for choosing paper packaging is that it's made from a sustainable resource -- trees. They can be replanted so the environment is not affected.


Recyclable And Biodegradable


Paper is one of the most widely recycled materials in the UK. In fact, more than 70 percent of the materials used to make cardboard in China are made from recycled paper. Waste paper is also often exported to other countries for recycling.


In the UK, it is also easy for end users to recycle paper, with most local authorities accepting "clean" paper (such as newspapers, cardboard boxes and magazines) for kerbside collection. Also, most paper packaging can be composted -- because it's biodegradable.


Favored By People


It is reported that paper and cardboard were the most environmentally friendly packaging material for UK adults. With 71% of consumers concerned that packaging is generally bad for the environment, it is not surprising that almost 80% of consumers like paper because it is biodegradable.




Paper packaging can reuse many things, such as wrapping paper, fiberboard and paper bags. Unlike paper, plastic bags can only be recycled into more bags. In addition, improved paper bags allow dry food to be stored on shelves, protecting both food and shelves. With the development of a large number of paper bottles for carbonated drinks and even milk, bio-based barrier materials could eventually replace plastics in many applications.


In addition, the paper packaging enhances brand awareness. The brand can easily display its unique graphics or stories on the paper.
