Sustainable case packing: Head-to-head comparison of Flat Pad Spot-Pak System vs. corrugated shipper
Seven-page PDF details the findings of an independent lifecycle analysis (LCA) study on Smart Balance's use of the Spot-Pak® package to replace corrugated shipper. Four charts document reductions in material use (and disposal), process and energy, greenhouse gases, and truckload shipments.
Anyone committed to environmental "sustainability" strives to meet the needs of the present generation without diminishing the ability of future generations to meet their needs. In the packaging industry, the increased interest in sustainability led to the formation of the Sustainable Packaging Coalition, a working group that developed a list of key attributes of environmentally friendly packaging. These include packaging designs that make optimal use of both materials and energy.
