With every item we buy, we rely on packaging to get it to us. We need packaging to safely transport our food from its source to our homes, to deliver materials, to protect things in transit from being ruined before we can use them.
Most people don’t realize how wasteful packaging can be. Packaging makes up nearly 30% of municipal solid waste!
That’s a lot of trash.
Lucky for us all, there are some awesome companies out there who want to work on fixing this issue.
Enter: Packsize.

What is Packsize?

Packsize is a company that looked at packing as we know it, and changed it. Targeting oversized packages that take more resources not only to create, but to fill, Packsize works to tailor each package to be the smallest it can be. To top that, it does it instantaneously, creating packages upon demand.

Packsize Principles

In order to make their packaging more sustainable, Packsize follows four main goals.
One: Use less corrugated cardboard. Plain and simple, goal one is to reduce materials.
Two: Minimize Void Fill. All those foam peanuts and fillers that protect your objects from moving around your box during shipping, but end up in landfills and oceans. No need to use them if your product is in the right size!
Three: Reduce Box Management. Instead of stocking up on large boxes of different sizes, Packsize saves space and materials by helping companies only have what they need, without all the extra.
Four: Increase Sustainability. As if the other goals weren’t a give away for this already. All the steps that Packsize follows to be more sustainable help to limit carbon footprint, limit pollution, and save some trees in the process. That’s a goal we can all get behind.

Helping the Environment: In Numbers

Remember that corrugated cardboard we talked about earlier? Well, for every million square feet of it used by Packsize versus alternative companies, there is..

60% Less void space filled26% Less cardboard used
40% Box reduction
And…
25 tons of Co2 saved from the environment
