In our second year of recovery from the pandemic, things seem to be getting back to normal. However, the focus is on sustainability as we look to reduce our environmental footprint in an effort to save the planet. But to make a real impact, we need to bring about a change in our daily habits. To do so, this summer you can switch to these 5 everyday-use sustainable items and make the earth a greener place.

Compostable Meal Plates Made of Sugarcane Waste

Compostable Meal Plates

As the summer heat slowly picks up, pool parties are going to be a staple. But, using thermocol plates for your food can do more harm than good. Instead, this summer you can switch to sustainable ecoware meal plates made from bagasse (sugarcane waste). Further, these utilitarian meal plates are FDA-approved, free from any sort of carcinogens, microwaveable, freezable, and ovenable. The cherry on the cake is that they’re available widely on Zepto, Blinkit, Big Basket and Amazon. Use it to make your summer parties instantly sustainable.

Eco-friendly Sanitary Napkins Made of Cotton

It can take many centuries for sanitary napkins to decompose, and an average woman uses between 10,000 and 12,000 of them annually. It amounts to 250 cubic feet of waste in landfills per woman. If you’re someone who’s concerned about the environment, switching to eco-friendly sanitary napkins made from organic cotton could be a wise decision. These napkins have received certifications from organizations such as GOTS and ICEA, which guarantee that the cotton used is organic, from seed to final product. These pads are highly environmentally friendly and are produced without the use of harmful chemicals, toxins, or fragrances. The reason that cotton is used is because it is a naturally sustainable and hypoallergenic material that is also pH-compatible with sensitive vaginal skin.

If you’re trying to make a sustainable change in your life, you can make it an integral part of your daily routine. Ordinary toothbrushes can seem like a cost-effective alternative, that’s until you factor in the environmental cost. But, eco-friendly toothbrushes like the ones by Beeco, can help you reduce your environmental footprint immediately! They are 100% bamboo-based, with charcoal-infused bristles, and contain 0% plastic. Additionally, they’re safe for kids and pets, completely non-toxic, and eco-friendly!

Biodegradable Garbage Bags and Sustainable Toilet Cleaner

What’s a more direct approach than to change the materials you use for domestic waste disposal and cleanliness. Eco-friendly garbage bags are a biodegradable and recyclable option you can choose this summer. Their convenient size and affordable price make them a great choice. You can also get a plant-based enzyme toilet cleaner that freshens, shines, and protects against germs without harmful chemicals not only freshens up the toilet and provides a superior shine, but also offers strong protection against germs. They are known for their uniform coating and non-corrosive nature, and features such as neutral pH, no hydrochloric acid, bleach-free formula, and zero toxic fumes make it a safer choice for toilet cleaning.

Made from 100% organic cotton, these bags help you reduce water consumption, land and soil acidity, and energy consumption. Using these bags will help you reduce your carbon footprint by 42%!

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
