The rise of e-commerce has allowed brands to experiment more, move faster, and be adaptive, hoping to build a future-proof business. However, this ease of shopping anywhere at any time can come at a cost of increased packaging waste, shifted from retail stores to homes. To thrive in this ‘on-demand’ era, brands have started reimagining packaging material usage and waste throughout the product lifecycle, while at the same time customers are demanding transparency on recyclability, clean processing, and sustainable sourcing. To bring this change, sustainable packaging needs to go beyond just an eco-friendly alternative and provide the desired functionality, with no need to choose one over the other. The talk will highlight trending packaging solutions that can excite, inform, and create memorable moments to strengthen consumer-brand relationships while saving the planet.
