BGZ brands to switch to soy-based ink for packaging printing
Additionally, BGZ brands is planning to use soy-based ink on the packaging that is designed to produce 20% lesser volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which is typically seen in petroleum-based inks.
The firm will also use eco-friendly resources, including the bioplastics and recycled materials while Lander products are planned to be made of recycled ocean plastics derived materials.
As part of the sustainability commitment, the company has established partnerships with firms including with ocean plastic recycling company Repreve.
Through the new partnerships, the firm expects foreign manufacturing factories to source eco-friendly materials while enhancing manufacturing with new technologies.
Moreover, BGZ brands will introduce multiple fulfilment centres for online and retail orders for faster shipping times for customers. It also intends to use 100% recyclable materials for reduced-size shipping boxes.
