Packaging is an essential commodity for many businesses, but it is important to consider ways to minimise the impact that packaging can have on the environment, without compromising on product protection.
Macfarlane Packaging’s three R’s Principles:
Macfarlane and our suppliers are constantly improving our techniques and technologies to create more efficient packaging products.
Re-using a product to prolong its life often makes good sense and many packaging products are designed to be utilised many times before they reach the end of their usable life. However, it is not always the most practical or best environmental option based on life cycle thinking. Therefore, recycling can be a better option over re-use.
3. Recycle (or Compost)
If a product can’t be re-used, it should be recycled as this can save energy, reduce rubbish in landfill sites and cut the cost of waste disposal.
Macfarlane Packaging is committed to achieving ISO 14001 registration at all sites. ISO14001 is an internationally accepted standard that defines the requirements for establishing, implementing and operating an environmental management system and the supporting audit programme.
ISO 14001 provides a framework for the development of an environmental management system and the supporting audit programme. Macfarlane Packaging is a responsible packaging supplier that is registered to, and operates in accordance with ISO 14001 Environmental Management standards.
