Fort Collins, Colorado, April 17, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —

Environmental concerns and hazards of extensive use of plastic use to propel the molded pulp packaging industry.


Growing concerns for the environment and a heightened understanding of the detrimental effects of plastic packaging have spurred a significant transition towards eco-conscious and sustainable packaging options. As per research conducted by Accenture, approximately 60% of consumers worldwide have actively chosen sustainable products within the past six months. Molded pulp packaging, crafted from recycled paper and other plant-derived materials, has become a favored substitute for traditional plastic packaging. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that paper and paperboard comprised over 65% of all packaging materials recovered for recycling in the United States. The biodegradable and compostable properties of molded pulp packaging have fueled its adoption across diverse sectors, encompassing food and beverage, electronics, and healthcare industries.

The exponential expansion of e-commerce has played a pivotal role in driving up the demand for molded pulp packaging. As online shopping continues to soar, the necessity for robust packaging solutions capable of enduring the challenges of shipping and handling has escalated. Molded pulp packaging stands out for its superior cushioning and shock-absorption capabilities, positioning it as the prime option for safeguarding delicate merchandise throughout transit.
