From That to This: Flexing For Sustainable Alternatives [Part 1 of 4]

Closing in on the first quarter of 2023, our team is beginning to notice several trending packaging solutions that are new and exciting for many of our customers. As sustainability remains at the forefront of the packaging world, businesses are investing in fresh, innovative alternatives to support these “green” packaging initiatives. The good news? Suppliers are answering. With all parties on board, the creativity combined with advanced engineering brings these ingenious packaging visions to life.


“From That to This”

In launching our “From That to This” sustainability series, we focus on our latest flexible packaging alternatives. While “simplicity” remains valuable as a packaging initiative, these transformative packaging solutions currently being produced are groundbreaking. Items such as flexible shampoo and conditioner pouches, flexible soap and laundry pouches, flexible chemical mixing bags, and child-resistant closure pouches continue to rise in popularity amongst all industries. Not only are these pouches providing a better product-to-packaging ratio for both businesses and consumers, but they’re also providing our customers with a cost-effective packaging solution.
