Packaging is vital, however when a product gets to the end of its life, the packaging then becomes waste. Burying or burning waste is a cause of pollution however recycling or reusing packaging helps to conserve resources. I love to recycle because it means that the packaging I am using isn’t going to waste and it will be used again, meaning there is less need for more plastic or paper to be manufactured.
Many of my favourite brands use recycled paper for their boxes, or they simply don’t use boxes at all, minimising their packaging to as little as possible.
