Green packaging, or sustainable packaging, refers to the use of sustainable materials and manufacturing methods for the packaging of goods. It utilizes biodegradable and plant-based plastics along with recycled molded packaging and used polyethylene bags to produce various products. In comparison to the conventionally used synthetic packaging process, green packaging has a reduced carbon footprint, which helps to support human and ecological health in the long run. The process of green packaging further includes ways that limit the amount of waste and emissions generated in the manufacturing process.
The growing awareness regarding environmental conservation and sustainable living is one of the key drivers of the market. This, coupled with stringent governmental regulations for environment protection and the industrial trend of incorporating renewably sourced materials in the manufacturing process, is also significantly catalyzing the market growth.
