Getting started with sustainable packaging

PACKAGING & the OCEAN

Nowadays, it’s important to consider how to be a more environmentally conscious business, However, integrate sustainability into packaging solutions remains a great many challenges, but Furong Box is still constantly working towards a more sustainable future.

Plastic Free Ocean

8 million tonnes of plastic enter the ocean every year, much of it is packaging.Plastics never go away, instead, they break down into smaller and smaller pieces, which act as magnets for harmful pollutants and spread them through the marine food web, and possibly to humans. Unfortunately, today only about 9 percent of all the plastics produced worldwide is recycled, to have an impact, we must reduce the amount of single-use plastic being produced at the source.
