Designing Sustainable Packaging

In the recent years, sustainable packaging design has become a buzz word. At CCL Healthcare we are taking things seriously and have made words actionable for sustainable packaging. From designing a package from the ground up to redesigning a current package and even how packaging is converted from raw materials during the manufacturing process. Our team of sustainable packaging engineers have been laying out and optimizing the process of manufacturing packaging to minimize both the materials used and the waste that is produced from converting. We have invested in equipment that reduces the print ready length and that are carbon neutral.

CCL Healthcare offers a sustainable packaging audit service to our customers to evaluate their product lines and recommend changes to align with their sustainability goals. The results can involve creating a new construction, modifying a current construction, eliminating colors, optimizing printing webs and printed sheets, changing adhesives, and use materials that are friendlier to the recycling process to help our customers move towards their goals of a sustainable package.

Things to Consider

Sustainability is not all or nothing. Simple changes can deliver significant impact in reducing material usage and savings for the brand owner.

  • Collaborate with CCL as primary/secondary packaging is being developed
  • Consider primary and secondary packaging – do you intend to recycle? Think from the back-end to enable proper design outcomes
  • Not all labels are created equal. Face stock, liners, and adhesives play a large roll in your costs and ability to achieve desired end-of-life scenarios.
  • Can your brand utilize recycled material, or will it need to be virgin material? 
  • Sourcing material from managed and sustainable sources
