On the inaugural episode of Beyond the Box, Ben talks about how sustainability fits into both noissue and the custom packaging world. A plant gets bumped, we learn about the old paper vs. plastic battle, and Steve and Cindy make their debut!

There are so many ways to incorporate sustainability into your business plan. But let's start with the basics. Sustainability for business refers to taking actions that don't harm the environment or at the very least, replacing or offsetting the impacts you're having on the environment. Complete sustainability is difficult, especially if you're selling something. However, taking a hard look at every step of your supply chain will be eye-opening in terms of how sustainable your business currently is, and is a great jumping off point to start making strides towards balancing and reducing your environmental impact.

For us at noissue, packaging is the part of your supply chain that we can help with. When sourcing packaging products, look first to eliminate plastic from your wrapping, packing, and bundling. By using paper products (best when either harvested/sourced sustainably or made from recycled goods) you're using a renewable and biodegradable packaging alternative. Furthermore, printing inks that are soy-based or vegan inks are a much better alternative to petroleum based printing inks. Check out our 2019 Sustainable Packaging Study for more information!
