Why Reusable, Recycled, Recyclable and Biodegradable Packaging Is the Future

Concerned about the environmental impact of your business’ packaging? Wondering what type of eco -friendly packaging is best for your industry? The Mend Packaging can help you out!

Many companies choose to use materials such as bio plastic bags, paper and corrugated sheets, and organic cotton instead of traditional plastic, foam and cardboard containers. These green materials are not only safer for the planet , but they also help you create unique packaging that stands out from your competition.

Let’s look at some of the benefits of these options and how you can make them work for your business.


How is this all possible?

Increasing consumer awareness coupled with regulatory changes over concerns of single use plastic are huge drivers for brands committing to more sustainable packaging alternatives. The packaging industry is focusing heavily on innovation and research, as well as collaborations with overseas manufacturers to provide alternative solutions to various packaging materials and use cases. Especially with legislative bans focused on eliminating the use of plastic, companies are taking heed towards transforming their packaging towards more sustainable options.


What makes our packaging and processes sustainable?


Raw Materials

All our raw materials are composed of recycled, renewable and organic materials. We can provide our clients with construction certificates that highlight the exact composition of what goes into the making of their packaging. Furthermore, we use toxin free inks that do not contaminate groundwater on disposal.




Our extensive vendor network allows us to work with vendors closest to a client’s location. This helps reduce transportation costs, timelines and carbon footprint.



Chain of Custody/ Tracking system
We use transaction certificates and bills of proof to ensure our raw materials are sourced from and distributed through a verified network.



Vendor Audit

All our vendors have environmental clearance from the pollution board and are in compliance with OSH Labor Laws. Additionally we are accredited with an ISO 14001 certification.



Carbon Neutral Workforce
We have partnered with Ecologi to become a climate positive workforce by planting a set amount of trees per employee per month.



One Step Further
We constantly strive to streamline our supply chain and ensure our packaging is clean, ethical and sustainable. In addition to manufacturing sustainable packaging for your brand, we can help you take your program one step further by developing a personalized program to help you recycle and offset your packaging waste.

● Aiming to provide packaging that is 100% recyclable
● Creating packaging that is composed of a high % of recycled content
● Eliminating packaging completely for some products
● Going completely plastic free and focusing on paper based packaging that is lightweight and less harmful to the environment
● Introducing buy back or incentive programs to motivate end consumers to properly recycle their products
