Many companies are integrating green marketing in their business operations nowadays. And eco-friendly packaging will surely pick up more steam in 2021. Here at ODM, we help companies come up with out-of-the-box packaging concepts that speak to eco-conscious buyers.

The retail industry is one of the major consumers of plastic. The packaging sector alone uses around 35-45 percent of plastic (depending upon the region). This is why it is important to use eco-friendly alternatives to help reduce the use of plastic-based packaging.

So, here are some green packaging ideas you may want to consider for your business.

Bamboo-Based Packaging

Abundant in Asia and other sub-tropical countries, bamboo grass is fast-growing and does not need special care. Besides being a source of food and construction material, it is also valuable as a packaging material.

We visited a trade show recently and we could not pass up on the chance to take a closer look at these bamboo storage boxes.
