4 Eco-Friendly Packaging Ideas For Jewellery Products
The world of selling jewellery is one that’s growing by the day. People are creating eco-friendly jewellery, customised jewellery and many other types of jewellery. This expansion is evident in the number of people who wear jewellery, an increase in the number of piercings people get and the vast expansion of the jewellery retail industry.
Recycled Or Biodegradable Plastic Bags
When you go to the grocery store or some clothing stores, sometimes they offer you plastic bags when you check out. When you get home and you finish packing up your groceries and all your other new items, your first instinct could be to throw the plastic bags too.
Most plastics aren’t good for the environment, so you should consider using them again and again.
Designate a drawer or cupboard for used plastics and use them again for packaging your jewellery. If you want to be different, you could customise your plastics and create some designs on the bags.
You could also cut the plastic to create smaller DIY bags. There are numerous video tutorials online of how to change plastic bags into really interesting bags.
Furthermore, some stores sell biodegradable plastic bags. And you could purchase these plastics in bulk and use them for your jewellery packaging.
Using biodegradable plastic bags is considered as one solution to plastic pollution in the world. Usually, these biodegradable plastics are made from recycled material, which is also relatively eco-friendly.
Sometimes you get a really exciting gift. And out of your excitement, you end up throwing the box that comes with it away. Here’s an alternative—keep these cardboard boxes that were used for your gifts.
Boxes could more easily be customised compared to other materials like plastics. The next time you get a gift make sure you keep the box. And perhaps you may find a use for it later on, like jewellery packaging.
You could take the box of your new video console, your new phone, your new computer mouse, your new diffuser, or anything else that comes with a box and use it to pack your jewellery. You could customise these boxes or change their outer colours using paints and various other art products.
Furthermore, stores like Packaging World and many others allow you to purchase cardboard boxes in bulk and use them for your business. Cardboard is considered one of the most eco-friendly packaging materials. And you could invest in purchasing them as packaging for your jewellery.
Paper is taking up space in many realms within societies. With paper straws and paper bags at the forefront, it’s clear that using recycled paper bags or just paper is environmentally friendly.
Paper is ideal for packaging purposes. You could learn how to create your own paper bags using various tutorials online. With step-by-step guides on how you can transform the necessary recycled material to create these paper bags.
Paper bags are also available for sale in various stores. You could buy them in bulk and then use them to package your jewellery. The most common paper bags are brown paper bags. They’re biodegradable and made from 100% recycled material.
Additionally, paper bags could be customised. Why not use various art materials to give them character and make them unique to your jewellery business?
Use Reusable Bags
The use of reusable bags is also growing in the world. People are walking into grocery stores and clothing stores with reusable bags, in support of moving away from plastic bags. They’re easy to wash and could be used for a long time.
If you’re relatively good at sewing or knitting, you could create your own reusable bags at home. You could also explore various designs and patterns and customise them.
You could also use fabric paint to add colour to them or draw your logo by hand. This might take a lot of work, but most customers appreciate anything handmade.
Be Eco Friendly
The environment and how people could preserve the environment are most talked about in society now. There’s so much the environment gives to us, and there are things that you could do give back too. Using these eco-friendly packaging ideas is one of these little things. Make your jewellery packaging eco-friendly, and you’d have taken a step toward being actively helpful to the environment.
