In recent years, the concept of green development has become deeply ingrained in people's minds, and improving product packaging through aesthetic design rather than complicated packaging has gradually become a consensus. The entire industry chain is working together to promote the formation of a new trend in packaging.


Upstream, businesses are innovating designs to increase practicality. For example, Mid-Autumn Festival mooncake gift box strictly controls the packaging to three layers. At the same time, a sturdy, highly transparent acrylic box is used as the inner packaging, complemented by a moon-themed design. This not only effectively protects the product but also serves as a storage box for secondary use.


In the middle of the chain, packaging companies are revolutionizing technology to improve quality and efficiency. By developing an artificial intelligence packaging design system, some packaging companies use an accumulated case database and external resource library to quickly provide several structural and graphic design solutions according to customer needs. They also use suitable packaging materials to achieve effective mechanical support for the product while reducing the amount of packaging used and design costs.


Downstream, e-commerce platforms are encouraging and guiding original packaging. "Original packaging refers to the packaging form that provides protection for goods during logistics transportation and can be directly shipped without secondary packaging," said a person in charge of Logistics. Currently, thousands of products have achieved factory original packaging and direct delivery, reducing the use of logistics cartons by more than 200 million and reducing paper usage by about 125,000 tons.


Reducing excessive packaging of goods is a long-term project. Experts suggest that while accelerating the improvement of relevant standards and policies, businesses should be encouraged and guided to use recyclable and biodegradable materials as much as possible when choosing packaging materials. Support should be provided for packaging companies to actively use new technologies to innovate packaging design and develop new materials with high strength and light weight.


The issue of excessive packaging is not just about environmental protection but also about economic benefits. Excessive packaging not only wastes resources but also increases costs for businesses and consumers. Therefore, it is necessary to find a balance between environmental protection and economic benefits.


In addition to using recyclable and biodegradable materials, businesses can also consider reducing the size of packaging, simplifying the structure, and using eco-friendly materials such as bamboo fiber or cornstarch-based plastics. In addition, businesses can also use innovative technologies such as 3D printing to create customized packaging that fits the product perfectly, reducing waste and improving efficiency.


To promote green development in the packaging industry, it is necessary to form a collaborative effort throughout the entire industry chain. Upstream businesses should innovate designs to increase practicality, while middle-stream packaging companies should revolutionize technology to improve quality and efficiency. Downstream e-commerce platforms should encourage original packaging to reduce waste. In addition, relevant standards and policies should be improved, and businesses should be encouraged to use environmentally friendly materials and innovative technologies.


In conclusion, green development in the packaging industry is not only a responsibility but also an opportunity for businesses. By promoting green development in the packaging industry through collaborative efforts throughout the entire industry chain, businesses can reduce costs, improve efficiency, and enhance their brand image while contributing to environmental protection.
