Why Plastic Packaging?

1) Plastic is practically unbreakable.  If you’re anything like me, dropsy, then plastic is the way to go so you don’t end up smashing your product packaging and wasting the contents.  I know I’ve dropped my products a time or ten.

 

2) Plastic is less likely to be damaged in transit.

 

3) Sending glass packaging would mean an increase in extra packing materials / resources consumed; large cardboard boxes, un-environmentally friendly puffles to buffer the glass etc.

 

4) Plastic is more affordable to transport across town and country.  It is light and therefore more fuel efficient for trucks and vans to ship.

 

5) Using PET plastic means our containers are recyclable – and also can be reused by customers for other things.

 

6) JOLI’s packaging is BPA Free.

 

7) Less trees have to be cut down in order to produce our packaging because we don’t package our containers in fancy cardboard display boxes that are usually discarded as soon as they product is opened.

 

8) Tin packaging would have to be coated in a coat of plastic (BPA) in order to stop the contents from corroding the metal, or the metal affecting the contents.

 

9) Generally there are no false bottoms and extra thick walls with plastic packaging so what you see is what you get.

 

Let us know what you think of JOLI’s packaging (product containers) by leaving a comment below.

Is paper better for the environment?

While paper breaks down much faster under ideal conditions, landfills are not ideal conditions. Paper bags generate 70 more air pollutants than plastic. They generate 50 times more water pollutants than plastic. It takes 91 percent less energy to recycle a plastic bag than it does a paper bag.

Which is easier to recycle paper or plastic?

Paper bags are much bulkier than plastic, so they fill up more landfill space.”
“They’re three to five times bulkier than plastic, and you can see that yourself at the grocery store. Landfills are closing down because they’re full. From that perspective, plastic is much better than paper.”

 

Paper bag manufacture is much more resource-intensive than plastic bag manufacture.
