There are many points that need to be considered when designing sustainable pharmaceutical packaging and these include:
Now, throw in ‘sustainability’ with the above points and this creates a complex design and manufacturing process for pharmaceutical packaging.
At Swiftpak, we understand that pharmaceutical products are highly sensitive and need to be protected to the highest standard. When designing sustainable pharmaceutical packaging, we achieve exceptional protection & security for your products, while using eco-friendly materials. These include recycled paper, paper board and corn starch. We improve on these sustainable practices by reducing the amount of packaging we use. On top of this, we understand the packaging lifecycle of our products. This means we can plan and implement sustainable sourcing across our entire process.
We don’t just focus on 100% biodegradable products; recyclable plastics can be sustainable too. It’s not uncommon for us to design sustainable pharmaceutical packaging using plastic. But why’s this? As long as consumers are responsible with recycling, plastic can be recycled over and over again and is a very versatile material.
In short, the packaging of medicines is just as important as the medicine itself. Preservation of drugs as well as the preservation of our planet are both as important as each other.
At Swiftpak we are constantly creating and developing new and innovative sustainable solutions. With our ISO-accredited processes and personal attention to detail, we help our clients reduce packaging waste and make smarter choices to ensure your products are effectively protected and cost-effective.
