Haney, The Packaging Microfactory, has officially launched the VIA ReSolve Sustainable Packaging Program. This exceptional resource guides brands of all types in the design, development, and deployment of optimized environmental packaging solutions.
One of the world’s most widely used forms of packaging – the blister pack – can now be made totally in paperboard. Two major benefits are reduced environmental impact and less consumer rage and self-injury. Blister packs are made to hang on a holder in the retail store and often consist of a paperboard backing plus a moulded transparent plastic front section to display the product to the consumer. The Norwegian converter Moltzaus’s ingeniously designed Cefapac improves both the pack’s environmental performance and its openability, and has already won awards.
