Sustainability Remains A Priority Among Packaging Makers, Retailers

November 11, 2010: 09:37 PM EST

Eco-friendly packaging has become a major trend among packaging manufacturers, consumer products manufacturers and retailers who are working together to promote cost-effective sustainability, even in a sagging economy. For example, the customers of a company that distributes organic foods like Silk soy milk are keenly aware of fair labor and trade practices, food miles, the environmental impact of products, and package recyclability, so the company keeps this criteria in mind when making procurement decisions. Even troubled companies like Winn-Dixie have kept sustainability a priority, relying on suppliers to maintain green standards. An executive at Winn-Dixie says financial condition shouldn’t stand in the way of principles: “It is finding the niche in which, relative to your space, you can play a role in sustainability, that makes the right sense for a business model.”
