Although the idea of sustainable retail packaging is not a ‘new’ concept by any means, Cadence Packaging Group is constantly inspired by agencies’ and company’s unceasing desire to create and innovate packaging that is reusable, recyclable, compostable, and everything in-between. We personally feel it is a very admirable and forward-thinking endeavor, and it’s a growing movement (no pun intended) that we are excited to take part in.
In a time when some resources are becoming limited and harder to come by, and companies and consumers are becoming more aware and conscientious of their ‘carbon footprint,’ it seems almost a necessity to remain competitive by thinking outside of the box – literally – when developing new packaging.
One of our favorite concepts is seed-infused paper (see image of shopping bag and direct link below). How great is that?

But there are easier ways to create and produce retail sustainable packaging as well, such as engineering boxes to use less materials, utilizing FSC-certified™ paper or focusing on reusable bag materials (products and services that are offered by Cadence Packaging Group – hint hint, wink wink).
Creating sustainable retail packaging doesn’t have to be a major endeavor. In this particular case, we feel it’s important for everyone to remember that every little bit counts, and lots of little steps can eventually lead into a very great journey!
What do you think of the sustainable and eco-conscious packaging movement? Have you or your company made any adjustments in the last few years to contribute? We’d love to hear about it, and what the experience(s) was like for you. Are you interested in considering new options, but don’t know where to begin? We’d love the opportunity to work with you! Leave a comment below, or contact us directly. We think we’ve got some pretty super ideas (not that we’re biased or anything).
