Now, nothing comes for free. With ease of shopping comes the cost of excessive packaging material and the waste creation. With each order placed there are numerous layers of packaging used. Many times, we as buyers feel guilty of creating so much waste. 

Buyers now are more aware about the impact they make on the environment with their actions. Hence many are shifting to eco-friendly products alternatives. Buyers also look up to the companies that are conscious towards Mother Earth and there are higher chances of the buyer being a loyal customer to an environmentally friendly company.  

Gen Z buyers appreciate companies who go extra mile and pay attention to minutest details like packaging of the products/garments. 

Though packaging without plastic bags may look inevitable but there are various options to Pack your Garments in Eco-friendly manner.


5 Simple ways in which we can opt for environmental friendly packaging:


1. Minimal Layering:

Using less layers for packing clothes itself is eco-friendly. This creates lesser waste, lesser carbon footprint.


2. Use of Paper:


Using Paper to wrap clothes is better than packing clothes in plastic envelopes , bags. Papers are easy to recycle, biodegradable in nature.

3. Corrugated Boxes:


 Corrugated boxes are 100% recyclable, sturdy.  One of the very good options to pack your garments when the have to be shipped.

4. Compostable Garment Bags:


Compostable packing industry is emerging very fast because of its nature. Compostable packing gets 100% composted. It becomes manure for soil as it is made from plant base. To some extent it replaces the need of plastic in packing of garments.

5. Cloth Bags:
