How Flexographic Printing Can Support Sustainability Initiatives

When we discuss packaging and sustainability the focus is often on the packages end of life; it is recyclable, compostable or made from PRC content? What can easily be missed is the importance of the printing process itself, particularly from the consumer perspective. In packaging today, flexographic printing and rotogravure printing are popular for long-run, high-volume printing, however, flexographic printing can provide sustainability benefits and be more cost effective for shorter runs.

Finally – a plastic-free blister pack

One of the world’s most widely used forms of packaging – the blister pack – can now be made totally in paperboard. Two major benefits are reduced environmental impact and less consumer rage and self-injury. Blister packs are made to hang on a holder in the retail store and often consist of a paperboard backing plus a moulded transparent plastic front section to display the product to the consumer. The Norwegian converter Moltzaus’s ingeniously designed Cefapac improves both the pack’s environmental performance and its openability, and has already won awards.
