Organic packaging - What is that?

04-09-2021 08:58

 

 

At Jakodan, we receive a lot of inquiries from customers who want to buy 'organic packaging'. This is not surprising, because Denmark is the country in the world where ecology is most widespread. What is organic packaging, and is it something that exists at all? When it comes to packaging, we are not talking about ecology, but rather about sustainability or environmental friendliness. Why? Read here!

 

 

What is ecology?


The term "ecology" was first used in 1866 by the German zoologist Ernst Haeckel. Haeckel's definition of the concept covered 'the doctrine of the household of nature' - that is, a scientific approach that looked at the relationship between living organisms and their way of life. Today, however, ecology has become a collective term for sustainable and holistic agriculture, where the environment, nature and animals are taken into account as far as possible - and where the goal is to benefit future generations.

 

 

Is there organic packaging?


We understand well that we receive many inquiries from customers who want to buy organic packaging, due to the set of values ??that the concept of organic covers. By acting organically, consumers express a desire to improve animal welfare and biodiversity, and to return to the earth what has been taken from it. However, as ecology is a term associated with food production and holistic agriculture, there is therefore no talk of 'organic packaging'. Instead, one can talk about sustainable or environmentally friendly packaging.

There are many certifications packaging companies can obtain that cover the same values ??and goals that organic consumers have. The certifications are your promise that the packaging is both sustainable and environmentally friendly - as they ensure the preservation of forests and soil, protection of wildlife and biodiversity, as well as good conditions for workers.

At Jakodan, we understand the importance of taking care of our current ecosystem so that we can secure the future for many generations to come. That is why we offer a large product range of sustainable and environmentally friendly packaging.

 

 

Our sustainable and environmentally friendly packaging


In 2019, Jakodan launched the Ethical Pack; a packaging brand that is both environmentally friendly and sustainable. Ethical Pack is a guarantee to customers that every single package is produced with the greatest possible care for the environment, while being of good quality. All our packaging of the Ethical Pack brand is produced in Europe from environmentally friendly resources - for example, from FSC-certified recycled paper, recycled plastic or sugar cane plastic. This means that CO2 emissions are reduced during production, and contributes to a circular economy where packaging can be recycled again and again. Read more about the individual Ethical Pack products and how they benefit the environment according to ordinary packaging here.

In addition to our Ethical Pack brand, it is a good idea to check whether your cardboard and paper packaging is FSC-certified if you want to use environmentally friendly packaging. In short, the FSC mark means that the cardboard comes from a forest where no more trees are felled than the forest can reproduce. In addition, it is a guarantee that animal and plant life as well as workers are protected and have good conditions. If you want to read more about FSC certification of cardboard boxes, we have written a longer explanation about it here.
