Sometimes it is more sustainable to use more packaging instead of less. This is due to the packaging’s ability to protect the product. When designed right, packaging can extend shelf life, protect the product, and decrease food waste. According to the Industry Council for Packaging and the Environment (INCEPEN), on average, the resources used in the making of packaging saves ten times more resources of the products it protects. When products are damaged, the product and the materials used to make the product are wasted. The product then must be remade and the old products often disposed.
