Even though COVID-19 has taken a toll on many manufacturers over the last few months, it is still important to keep sustainability in mind. MJS Packaging has always made packaging innovation a main priority. Our company continues to demonstrate this by exploring packaging options and sustainability measures that are better for the environment overall.

Sustainability and Barrier Packaging

The ability to recycle packaging is growing more and more important for consumers and manufacturers. We offer a wide variety of recyclable packaging, but we will focus on recyclable barrier packaging within this post.

Barrier packaging prevents the contacts of packaging from escaping through the materials of the package and the outside environment from getting into the package. In doing so, it prevents paneling and spoilage. This packaging is used for numerous chemical products such as lawn, garden, coatings, lubricants, and greases, etc. Barrier packaging can also be used with food and beverage products, flavors, and fragrances.

The barrier packaging is achieved through fluorination that is applied to an already finished bottle. Fluorination is the process of adding a chemical barrier to existing plastic containers. This protects the product inside the container. Using fluorinated containers to package chemicals, like pesticides or fertilizers, protects both the consumer and the product.

The main concern with barrier packaging is that it has not always been able to be recycled. Now there is a fully recyclable, monolayer barrier packaging technology that is 100% sustainable. This packaging compares to both PET and HDPE bottles in that it is 100% recyclable and has a lower environmental footprint.

Focus on Sustainable Packaging

When it comes to sustainable packaging, one of the first things manufacturers strive for is to make their packaging recyclable. Recycling and sustainability are now key in the purchase decision-making process by an environmentally-focused generation.

If you are buying a product, wouldn’t you want it to be good for you and good for the environment? Everyone should consider purchasing sustainable products or products that are made in a sustainable way. There are many brands and companies that stress the importance of their product for being green and emphasize how their packaging doesn’t damage the environment as well.

According to Business Insider, brands explain why sustainable packaging makes consumers feel good about buying their products. If a company emphasizes that they protect the package, the product, and that it is good for the environment, then it can capture the attention of a lot of people.
