Ecommerce is a blooming industry off late. With ecommerce, people can shop from the comforts of their own homes without needing to move out. Items that are delivered to customers are packed well so that the goods reach the customers without breakage or damage. And this is possible with the use of good packaging materials.

Mentioned below are 10 effective tips for ecommerce businessmen for using environment friendly packaging:

1. Keep the size of the box in mind

Packing boxes come in different sizes and shapes. Choosing the right size of box can cut down on the costing of shipping. Also with bigger box size, more bubble wrap will be used for padding. Bubble wraps are non-recyclable and bad for the environment. Use small boxes for small items and use less bubble wrap for padding.

2. Review the packaging

It is important that you review the packaging that you use for shipping various items. This will give an idea of the materials used for packaging things, about the source of the materials and the costing of the same. This will help in calculating average price of packing of each item. Alternative packaging resources can also be found.

3. Go green for packing materials

Eco-friendly packaging supplies are high in demands as more and more e-commerce businesses are using them. While these materials might be slightly expensive than other packing items, they are environment friendly in nature. Some bubble wraps contain 100% corrugated cardboard while some packing tapes are made from plant based adhesives etc.

4. Use environment friendly padding materials

Many items need padding and cushioning insidewhile packing. Bubble wraps and foam balls are the most common materials, which are used for cushioning. However these materials are non-biodegradable. It is recommended to go for eco-friendly padding materials like starch cushioning, recycled paper balls, bio degradable bubble wrap etc.

5. Reduce paperwork

Ecommerce sellers often send stack of invoices along with the parcel. Instead of using so much paper for invoices, try sending the same via other means like email, SMS messages etc. this helps in cutting down on the carbon footprint and minimizes overall shipping cost. If paper is being used for invoices, they should be coming from sustainable sources.

6. Reusing the cardboard boxes

Usually cardboard boxes in varying shapes and sizes are used for packing various kinds of items and sending them. If the boxes are in good condition, they can be used later for various purposes. Infact you can pack things in the box and gift it to someone.

7. Ground transportation against air transportation

The ways in which the goods are transported impact the environment. Sending the item by air takes much less time for delivery, but the environment is impacted by this step. However, when sent via land or waterways, shipping becomes eco-friendly.

8. Send things packed togethe

Instead of shipping many small boxes, try putting all of them in one large box and ship. Shipping goods in one large box reduce emissions, use less packing materials and padding etc. While shipping only one box needs transportation instead of many small boxes saving money as well as space.

9. Let the customers know about your eco-friendly initiative

Everyone appreciates eco-friendly moves nowadays. Asa ecommerce seller, make sure that you use biodegradable products for packaging etc in the website along with the product description. This helps in making great impact on the customer.

10. Selecting the best shipping provide

While some shipping providers and packaging suppliers are extremely casual and callous about environmental concerns; others are quite particular about the same. Choose a shipping provider who value your environment friendly initiatives and can ship orders in bulk for saving energy resources from various aspects.
