Eco-friendly magazine packaging concept for Vogue Scandinavia

Vogue Scandinavia is disrupting the publishing industry in many ways. One of the unique features of Vogue Scandinavia is its sustainable packaging concept. There are two packaging versions: Normal Edition and the Collectors’ Item Limited Edition made from Ensocoat by Stora Enso. The package replaces the traditional single-use plastic wrapping used in magazines.

The magazine and packaging are carbon-neutral, made with a renewable, low-carbon raw material, and energy-efficient production. The remaining emissions are offset by using the CarbonZero service by Stora Enso, collaborating with compensation partner the South Pole.

The innovative berry container comes in several sizes and can be used for many other products too. It replaces plastic packaging – even the integrated lid is made from a corrugated board. Half a million renewable berry containers can help cut out 4500 kilograms of fossil plastic. The packaging is cost-effective, easy to use, rigid, and effortless to flatten before recycling. Customer-specific images can be printed on the package to increase visibility and attractiveness.

The corrugated board packaging is optimized for transporting fragile products. It has innovative folding with corner protections. It helps streamline the packaging process, helps avoid plastics as plastic wrapping is not needed, and is very protective and reduces transportation damages. The packaging is user-friendly in packing and unpacking and simple to recycle.

The renewable logistics packaging is made for an intelligent fridge, currently used by Selfly Store by Stora Enso. Selfly Store is a complete, easy-to-set-up solution that enables you to run your unmanned self-service micro-store. The packaging replaces solutions that typically include a mix of materials: EPS, shrink-plastic, and wood. It is trouble-free to recycle as this packaging is fully made of renewable corrugated board. The packaging process does not require any external tools and supports ergonomic work throughout the supply chain.

 

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
