With more and more consumers gravitating towards eco-friendly choices, Antalis is reminding dealers to advocate the benefits of sustainable paper and packaging options, and the advantages it can bring to businesses.

As the flurry of headlines on plastic waste and the devastating impact it is having on the environment continue to dominate the news agenda in 2018, a recent study has revealed sustainability as the top priority for consumers – with 66% admitting they would spend more on a product if it was sustainable.

As such, Antalis is encouraging dealers to recommend eco-friendly paper and packaging alternatives to customers, and promote the role such options can play in helping businesses to boost their green while reducing costs.

 

Tim Percival, Divisional Director at Antalis Office, said: “With an increasing public awareness of sustainability this year, consumers and businesses alike are stepping up their social conscience, which is increasingly influencing all their decision – including paper and packaging.

“As such, this rising momentum for going green, which will no doubt intensify with the next generation of consumers, represents a fantastic opportunity for dealers to work with customers on offering eco-friendly paper and packaging solutions that don’t have to cost the earth.”

One such solution that hits the nail on the head with its sustainable benefits is the Xerox Recycled range, a FSC® certified paper made from 100% recycled fibres, which unlike other recycled papers ensures a premium feel and finish.

For those looking make their packaging more environmentally friendly, tailoring materials to perfectly fit your product not only promotes less waste, but is also a more protective and efficient way to transport goods, thus reducing the overall carbon footprint. For example, the Geami WrapPak® range is an eco-friendly and aesthetically-pleasing alternative to traditional bubble wrap that can significantly reduce the need for plastic void-fill – resulting in significant cost savings by cutting down on overall packaging required.

Tim adds: “While terms such as sustainability and eco-friendly may strike fear in some clients, dealers have a job to do in explaining the simple but effective options available to businesses, specifically those with high volume requirements, to achieve their environmental obligations while boosting their income.”
