One of the ways to help you reduce the environmental impact of your business is to look at your packaging. Consider how much of the packaging is made from recycled material, how much can be recycled and reused and how much is actually necessary. Minimised packaging is becoming increasingly popular and is a fantastic way of cutting down costs and wastage.
The packaging of your products is not the only aspect to address, also consider your international logistics. When it comes to packing up your goods for shipping are you again using the greenest types of packing materials, do you use larger than necessary boxes? Could you help to reduce your impact on the environment by replacing your filling materials with a greener product?
