The hype around the use of plastic has led to a lot of writing in the media. As a result, the message has not become much clearer. So how do you choose the best packaging? And do you opt for plastic or do you choose a paper wrapping?
Looking specifically at developments in the field of flower and plant packaging, there are several developments, such as:
- The introduction of the use of Bio-based plastics instead of the use of plastic made from fossil raw materials. The development and use of new types of raw materials is a positive development.
- More applications of materials that are biodegradable, which is a positive trend.
- The introduction of Hydropaper increases the possibilities for using paper because it is more water-resistant. The experience that paper gives a natural look is also appealing to consumers.
- New legislation and partnerships such as the Alliance to End Plastic Waste are also positive developments. They provide guidelines, create awareness and encourage collective goals to be set.
In the meantime, you are still wondering which packaging is best for you. You want to create added value by protecting your flowers or plants and by presenting them beautifully to the consumer. The success of your choice is determined on the one hand by the material, and on the other by the trends and developments in the market.
