Plant-Based Products and Packaging Take the Place of Plastic

Chances are you’ve seen or heard something recently about the green, sustainable, plant-based movement disrupting packaging, foodservice, pet care, and many other industries. What is less clear is what it means for businesses and the planet now and in the future. Sustainability is more than just branding, after all – a product label that says “eco-friendly” or “earth-friendly” or “green” doesn’t necessarily mean it’s sustainable.

The environmental benefits of using compostable packaging are manifold: Not only does it require less carbon to produce, but it also reduces the amount of waste sent to landfill (or into oceans, forests, and communities), and, importantly, no toxins are produced as the material decomposes.

There are significant business benefits as well. Earth-friendly and sustainable packaging options give your business a positive boost in the public eye – and are also associated with higher-quality products. It’s much easier to trust the values and quality of a company that has put thought and care into its packaging, after all.

Similarly, a growing number of customers (or potential customers) are looking for eco-friendly options to help the environment, giving businesses the opportunity to expand their customer base and appeal to people looking for green options specifically.

NCCO’s Commitment to Sustainability and Plant-Based Packaging

As a global company, NCCO understands how packaging plays an important role in delivering our products securely and responsibly to consumers far and wide. We have proudly produced products that address foodservice challenges and give the hospitality industry a competitive edge. However, we are equally concerned with how much packaging waste ends up languishing in once beautiful spaces.

To this end, we are working tirelessly to create a world where packaging doesn’t immediately become waste or add to already-full waste streams. Our commitment in 2024 and into the future is to reduce the amount of packaging we use as a company while offering essential products in packaging for our customers that is reusable, recyclable, biodegradable, or compostable.

Biodegradable, compostable, and recyclable materials, like cellulose packaging and recycled cardboard, are currently the most common sustainable packaging solutions. Green packaging options can also be classified based on the materials used and how they are disposed of. NCCO is committed to offering sustainable alternatives to traditional packaging types. Our growing catalogue of recyclable, compostable, and biodegradable labels, piping bags, paper products and more ensure we lessen negative impact on the environment by the day.

Waste from packaging is a global issue. It pollutes our oceans and forests and threatens the health of the planet. NCCO’s vision for the future is one of a healthy planet free of unnecessary waste – one of recycling, reusing, and composting – while producing products that will support your business now and in the future.
