Sustainable Packaging Canada

Using sustainable packaging helps reduce waste, water and power use and lowers harmful emissions. Adopting eco-friendly practices demonstrates your commitment to social responsibility and can attract more customers.

Canada generates more than 3 million tons of plastic waste annually, nearly half of it from packaging. In response, Canada revealed a plan in 2018 to create a circular economy for plastics, introducing a detailed Strategy on Zero Plastic Waste to tackle this problem.

Businesses in Canada looking to adopt greener practices may consider these eco-friendly packaging options:

  • Recyclable plastics
  • Paper and cardboard
  • Biodegradable materials
  • Plant-based materials

Paper and cardboard are excellent sustainable options that can be easily recycled. This reduces the demand for new resources and lessens waste. Additionally, these materials break down naturally over time.

Paper and paperboard materials are among the first and most widely used packaging options for food items such as milk and dairy products, beverages, dry powders, sweets, and bakery goods, mainly because they are eco-friendly.

Kraft Paper

Kraft paper gets its name from the German word for "strong." It's produced from at least 80% sulphate wood pulp, which gives it a coarse and very strong quality. It's made with a rough surface to keep bags from slipping off pallets.

Frequently Asked Questions


Can the colour of kraft paper be changed or dyed?

Yes, the colour of kraft paper can be changed or dyed. Although it naturally comes in brown due to the wood pulp it's made from; kraft paper can be bleached to make it white or dyed in various colours to meet specific aesthetic requirements. However, altering the colour might impact its recyclability and environmental friendliness, depending on the dyes and processes used.

Are there any foods that shouldn't be packaged in kraft containers?

Yes, some foods are not suitable for standard kraft containers. Very oily, greasy, highly acidic foods and very wet items may soak through or damage the paper unless the container is specially lined or treated to handle these foods.

How does the price of kraft packaging compare to styrofoam?

They tend to be more expensive than styrofoam due to their eco-friendly materials and production processes. However, the environmental benefits and positive customer perception of kraft packaging can outweigh the higher cost, which makes it a valuable investment for businesses focused on sustainability.

How do I dispose of kraft packaging properly?

  1. Recycle it if it's clean and free of food.
  2. Compost it if it's soiled and marked compostable.
  3. If neither option works, place it in the trash.

Check local guidelines to ensure correct disposal.
