Green choice packaging

We care about our environment and so do you.

L-Print takes a proactive stand and fights the climate crisis by investing in most sustainable production methods and actively encouraging our customers to do the right thing for the environment and all of us. Just switching from rigid packaging (like glass, aluminum, HDPE or composite carton) to flexible packaging will have a 5-10x lower environmental impact.

It is widely known that digital printing can have extremely fast turnaround times, no printing forms are required, no minimum quantities are set and there can be an unlimited number of SKU’s in the same print job. Printing digitally will have 40-80% lower environmental impact compared to conventional printing methods in small to medium print job range. At L-Print, we made a decision to print everything digitally.

Final step in the sustainable packaging journey is to make the Green Choice. We will help you choose sustainable packaging that best suits your needs without compromising visual appearance or shelf life of your products.

11 of the world’s leading brands including PepsiCO, Cocacola, Mars and Evian are working towards 100% reusable, recyclable or compostable packaging by 2025.
