Eco-friendly packaging is any type of packaging that’s designed to have a minimal impact on the environment. In many cases, such packaging is compostable and biodegradable, so it can have a positive impact on the environment if they’re thrown out. Others are simply recyclable, which minimises the harm it does.
It uses materials and manufacturing practices that don’t harm the environment, such as having a zero deforestation policy in a product’s and its packaging’s creation. That’s in stark contrast to traditional packaging, which typically emits carbon dioxide and similar gases during its production.
Chemicals can also leach into the environment, affecting wildlife and aquatic environments. That could lead to the death of animals.
