Nowadays consumers are becoming more and more environmentally aware and are seeking out more sustainable lifestyle choices. Packaging manufacturers are responding by ensuring their materials and processes are as eco-friendly as possible.
But how about luxury packaging trends? There is increasing public and industry pressure on luxury brand owners to reduce their environmental impact. These implications have meant many luxury packaging companies are now using more environmentally friendly materials such as paperboard, rather than plastics.
There are brands that have made the switch and are doing fine just now. Take fashion brand Gucci, for instance. They launched 100% recyclable packaging back in 2010, cutting down on excess packaging, and other brands have followed. (Read our blog post about Gucci’s eco-friendly packaging here: http://www.swedbrand-group.com/blog/did-you-know-that-guccis-packaging-is-100-recyclable ).
