Here at Sinoway, we take the effects of packing materials on the environment very seriously. That’s why we’re dedicated to making our pouches 100% recyclable and biodegradable. We also encourage you to find creative ways to reuse your pouches to help minimize your impact on the earth.

The Effects of Packing Materials on the Environment 

According to sustainability organization Green Choices, packaging totals between a quarter and a third of all domestic waste. In particular, food packaging comprises 2/3 of total packaging waste by volume. We are dedicated to minimizing negative environmental impact, and promoting more environmentally-friendly solutions in the packaging industry.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends purchasing products packaged with a material that can be recycled. Non-recycled plastic can take up to 1000 years to decompose if placed in a landfill. Fortunately, our packaging materials are 100% recyclable and biodegradable. Recycling involves taking materials that would typically be disposed of via landfill or other means, and redirecting it to be reprocessed in the shape of other materials. 

Additionally, here at Sinoway Pouch Station, we utilize water-based inks for our products. Water is the main solvent for the ink, which retains pigments in their original hue. Sinoway Pouch Station is also a proud user of non-leaching ink, which reduces toxins being released into the environment. These combined efforts can potentially reduce negative impact on the Earth, and alleviate some of the environmental destruction that occurs as a result of human businesses. .

We are proudly eco-friendly, and FDA approved, and ISO and OS certified. According to NASA, over 97% of climate change scientists have come to the consensus that the earth is warming due to human activities. The global sea level rose approximately 8 inches in the past century, but the rate in the last two decades has doubled. NASA’s Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment reveal Greenland lost 36 to 60 cubic miles of ice between 2002 and 2006.

We’re determined to help decrease our carbon footprint, as well as raise awareness for environmental protection through our business direction and packing choices. Only through unified effort, can we as humans reduce our carbon footprint and increase sustainability for future generations to come.
