Greener has partnered with leading supplier of eco-friendly packaging, Better Packaging Co. to help retailers cut costs and carbon emissions at the same time.

Greener for Business members can save 15% off their first order plus access to future spend and save discounts when they switch to Better Packaging Co.’s POLLAST!C mailers and garment bags made from 100% recycled ocean bound plastic pollution, boxes made from bamboo and more.

In 2023, online packages were shipped to over 9.5 million households around the country, according to Australia Post’s ecommerce industry report.

Despite growth in the use of more environmentally-friendly packaging, most packaging is still produced from virgin materials. More than 40% of recyclable packaging continues to end up in landfill and adds 2.2 million tonnes to Australia’s total emissions in a single year, data from the DCCEEW shows.

Better Packaging Co., founder, head of impact and brand, Kate Bezar said, “Packaging is such a tough thing for companies to get right. It has to do the job of protecting products and yet it’s also very ‘customer-facing’ so becomes an easy target for criticism. We want to make it simple for companies to do the best thing for the environment and still be confident that their packaging is fit for purpose.

“Generally, the latest technological advances are the exclusive realm of the big end of town. We like to think we’ve democratised sustainable packaging by doing the R&D ourselves and then making the results available to even the smallest businesses through our website and partnership with Greener.”

Greener founder, Tom Ferrier commented, “Our research shows that nine in 10 Australians prefer to shop with brands that are taking climate action. Using packaging that’s better for the planet is a simple way to show customers you care about making a positive impact and build brand loyalty.”

In partnership with Better Packaging Co. Greener is on a mission to turn every delivery carbon neutral from store to door. Greener businesses can save money by packing their products in eco-friendly bags or boxes thanks to Better Packaging Co., then take advantage of Greener’s discounted shipping with Sendle, making the entire delivery carbon neutral.
