Choose Your Sustainable Packaging

EcoEnclose is the leader in sustainable packaging. We offer many different eco-friendly packaging options. So, it’s not surprising that the most common question we get is, “Which one is the most sustainable?”

Unfortunately, there is no easy response. Questions like “Plastic versus Paper” and “Recyclable versus Compostable” do not have clear answers. We suggest companies develop their unique sustainability vision to guide packaging decisions. Sustainability and Your Business offers step-by-step guidance on this process, and our Sustainable Packaging Resource Center is chock full of resources to help you learn more.  

This page lists sustainable packaging characteristics and EcoEnclose products that align with each eco feature. Once you’re armed with your sustainable packaging framework, this resource helps you quickly identify packaging options that best align with your vision. Need more info on a specific packaging solution? Check out our Bill of Materials.

100% RECYCLED CONTENT

Recycled Content

Utilizing as much recycled content as possible is core to our Sustainable Packaging Framework. Recycled content means lower carbon emissions, new resources weren't harvested, and that recycling markets are strengthened. Learn more about why recycled content is so important to us.

Recycled content can be post-consumer (material that has been used by a consumer or business) or post-industrial (scraps from the manufacturing process). We aim to use as much post-consumer waste as possible because it is more difficult to manufacture with and harder to find markets for.

RECYCLABLE

Curbside Recyclable
Thin Film Recyclable

"Recyclable" is also core to our Sustainable Packaging Framework. After "Reuse," Recycle is the next most optimal end of life scenario.

The term "recyclable" can mean Curbside Recyclable or Harder to Recycle. Curbside recyclable means that most Americans can put the item in their mixed recycling or blue bin. Harder to Recycle means that (as of today), companies and consumers must dispose of the items in a pre-sorted recycling stream. We prefer Curbside Recyclable over Harder to Recycle, because these items are far more likely to actually be recycled. We also recognize that recycled materials with a strong and consistent market are preferred over goods that are difficult for recyclers to sell.

CARTON SEALING TAPE, SHIPPING LABELS, AND STICKERS

When it comes to tape, labels, stickers, and anything else you adhere to a package, we should avoid the blanket term "recyclable" because the recyclability of these items depends on where they are being affixed. Recyclers can't recycle the package if a shipping label is used on a non-recyclable mailer (such as a paper exterior, bubble interior mailer). If used on a corrugated shipping box, recyclers can recycle the entire package.

Our paper-based tapes, labels, and stickers all feature "recycle compatible adhesive," meaning that if they are applied to a paper-based package, recyclers can safely recycle the entire package and the adhesive.

COMPOSTABLE, NATURALLY BIODEGRADABLE

Compostable
Naturally Biodegradable
Recycling is the preferred end-of-life scenario for eCommerce packaging. Composting is the next best end-of-life option if one can't recycle something. Most of the compostable packaging options below are recyclable and naturally biodegradable. We love this because the items can and should be recycled, but they will ultimately biodegrade if they end up as litter. And, even after the package is recycled into something new, the raw material will eventually return to the Earth.
 
We are often asked if we carry a Compostable Poly Mailer. Currently, we do not. The PLA/PBAT blend presently being used for all Compostable Poly Mailers on the market is not as eco-friendly as 100% Recycled Paper Mailers or 100% Recycled Poly Mailers. In addition, this material does not solve the critical challenges posed by traditional plastic.

MADE WITH RENEWABLE MATERIALS, PLASTIC-FREE

Renewable Materials
Plastic-Free Packaging

We know so many companies are searching for plastic-free packaging alternatives. This section includes our packaging options that are made with renewable materials - the majority of which are made with paper.

It is important to note that most of these are not "polymer-free." Their adhesives include polymers and many of the mailers have adhesive strip release liners with silicone coating. We are often asked if we carry a bio-based poly mailer. Currently, we do not as we have been unable to yet find or develop a poly mailer made with 100% renewable materials (compostable poly mailers available today include PBAT, a petroleum-based binding agent).

PRINTING INKS

Though inks make up a tiny percentage of the weight of a package, printing inks have, historically, had a major negative impact on the environment. EcoEnclose works with eco-friendly inks, and is thrilled to offer Black Algae Ink - the world's most sustainable ink - as a printing option for all of our paper-based packaging.

The World's Most Sustainable Ink

Black Algae Ink: The pigment in this ink is made with algae cells! EcoEnclose's paper mailers feature branding and sustainability information on the bottom foldover, printed with black algae ink. And, when you custom brand your shipping boxes, paper mailers, notecards and more, you can choose to print with black algae ink. Learn more and start making algae part of your sustainable packaging strategy!  

Water-Based Ink

Water-Based Inks: For most printing inks, 80% of the volume is the "carrier." This is the part that carries pigments onto the substrate and then evaporates, leaving the colorant behind. Water-based inks means that the carrier is water, so most of what is evaporating into the air is harmless (and emits low or no VOCs). EcoEnclose utilizes water-based inks in all of its post-production and most of its inline printing.  

Soy-Based Ink

Soy-Based Inks: These inks utilize a carrier made with soy. We use soy-based inks for any post-production and inline production that uses offset printing technology.

MANUFACTURED IN NORTH AMERICA

North America Manufacturing

The vast majority of our packaging is manufactured in North America.

We have deliberately sought domestic manufacturing partners for several reasons. It has allowed us to visit and audit our sites, and ensure that working and environmental conditions align with our values. This proximity has made it easier to iterate and improve the functionality and sustainability of our products. Additionally, because many of our products are bulky to ship, working with US and Canada-based suppliers cuts down on the carbon footprint of transportation. Learn more about why we prioritize domestic manufacturing on our blog.

Overseas Manufacturing
We carry three products manufactured abroad.
  • Glassine Bags: Manufactured in China
  • Cello Tape: Manufactured in Spain
  • Hemp Twine: Manufactured in Hungary
  • Flexi-Hex Air Sleeves: Manufactured in China

GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS

Greenhouse Gas Emissions

We know that many companies aim to minimize their carbon footprint as their primary sustainability goal. This is an excellent approach to a sustainability vision as it is quantifiable and concrete.

While we do not have a specific carbon footprint for every product we offer, we do offer resources to help you understand the impact of different choices.
Regardless of the packaging strategy you choose, if you are focused on minimizing your carbon footprint, aim to use the smallest possible package you can and eliminate unnecessary and non-functional additions to your shipments.
