In today’s digital age, businesses are trying to attract consumers towards their products through all kinds of advertising. From television and newspaper adverts to social media campaigns and event sponsorship, every business is trying to maximize its reach by using every kind of medium available at its disposal.
Internet and computers didn’t just start the digital era though; they also started the era of social awareness. Today, everyone is quite aware of problems like global warming and climate change and, everyone is trying to play their role in stopping these life-threatening global issues.
In a recent survey, conducted by a well-respected research firm, it was found that not only does the average citizen wants to play a bigger role in fighting climate change but they also want to see businesses and corporations do the same too. Nearly 80% of the population wants to see businesses play a bigger role in our fight against global warming.
How can businesses step up?
A lot of big corporations have made it their mission to fight global warming and majority of them are trying to achieve the carbon-neutral status as soon as possible.
There are quite a few ways through which businesses around the world are fighting global warming. Here are some of the most prominent; generating electricity through renewable energy sources for their offices, banning or limiting the use of plastic, kick starting plantation drives and even trying to suck out carbon from the air.
Using recycled cartons is good for your business
As we mentioned earlier, thanks to the internet, people are a lot more socially aware these days. Today, people notice which businesses are employing environmentally-friendly policies and then people show their appreciation and support for such businesses by buying more from them and always coming back to them in future.
Needless to say, using environmentally-friendly packaging can earn you loyal customers and that will help build brand image and increase sales simultaneously.
Environmentally-friendly packaging can help reduce your costs
Recycling carton boxes is one of the cheapest and easiest recycling processes and this is why recycled (and eco-friendly!) packaging is so cheap and common these days. By replacing your products’ plastic packaging with eco-friendly cartons, not only will your business earn customers’ respect but it will also be able to reduce its costs (and help save the planet at the same time).
The thing about carton boxes is that they come in standard sizes and if the product that’s being packed is small, companies usually fill the gap an extra piece of corrugated packaging. The good news is that almost all big businesses offer custom-built boxes and cartons.
Today, almost all big and smart businesses are going for custom boxes because it allows them to pack their products in beautiful-looking and nicely-fitting boxes while doing their bit for the environment.
