Sustainable Packaging

It's All in the Design

Package Development Co., Inc. has produced consumer packaging utilizing recycled plastics for more than 25 years, far longer of most of the industry. The design and engineering that we put into our customer packaging takes into consideration automation, reducing labor cost. All of us at Package Development take pride in reducing our carbon foot print. One example is more product per pallet = higher cube, fewer trailers, less fuel consumption, smaller warehouse space, less corrugated, fewer pallets.

Our factory is state of the art, sky lights provide natural lighting, machinery heating and cooling processes recycled. We utilize high efficiency hydraulics and servo systems. Everything from paper board, pallets, plastics, oils, greases, lubricants, aluminum, and glass all go through a closed loop recycling life cycle.

While the global focus on sustainability has only recently become "vogue", Package Development Company has long been a front runner in providing sustainable packaging solutions. Below are the 8 R’s of Sustainable Packaging:

  1. Remove unnecessary packaging components
  2. Reduce packaging to be the right size to fit your product and graphic messaging
