Sustainable Packaging Design
This section provides you with tips on designing your packaging system in a sustainable way.
As part of Repak’s ‘Prevent and Save’ programme we have accumulated lots of great case studies in best practice and innovation. This section of the website is designed to capture all those ideas under each material grouping. It is intended to offer some fresh approaches to packaging challenges which our member companies often experience.
We are always seeking new case studies and feedback to further build this section so please keep us informed of any recent innovations your own company has made to optimise their packaging.

Please also refer to the Packaging Design Brief and Checklist within our Packaging Optimisation Toolkit for guidance on designing packaging in a holistic manner. This toolkit is available in the tools and services section of our website.
Design for Recycling
