Packaging is an essential commodity for many businesses and, used properly, can reduce waste by protecting products in transit. At Macfarlane Group we recognise our responsibility to advise our customers on best practice in their use of packaging in a sustainable and environmentally sensitive manner.
We encourage our customers to:
1. Use the minimum amount of packaging material possible, eliminate where possible.
2. Deploy the most efficient packaging products available.
3. Re-use packaging materials wherever possible.
4. Use packaging that is both recycled and recyclable and recycle packaging material whenever possible.
In these ways we seek to ensure that our customers’ products are appropriately protected while utilising packaging in a responsible way.
