In recent years, as the green movement has not only grown, but also become a mainstay concern, there has been a lot of attention focused on sustainability in point-of-purchase displays and retail packaging. Many manufacturers and retailers have used eco friendly store displays to educate consumers on their sustainability programs. Others have focused on the recyclability of the display itself. Here are some great examples of how the green philosophy has been turned into action in the retail setting:
- AT&T Plant-Based Packaging – wireless accessories to use a plastic made of “up to 30 percent plant-based materials, sourced from sugarcane-based ethanol.”
- Coke “Give It Back” Program – not only are the displays 100% recyclable…Coke is managing the recovery to insure proper disposal.
- Pacific Perfumes’ Green Award gets International Exposure – the small perfume company received global buzz, growing global sales, after winning the award in the green category of the HBA International Package Design Award.
- Nestle Singapore’s Mobile App Helps Consumers Recycle Packaging – Their 123Recycle program allows users to scan product barcodes to get information on sorting and recycling the packaging.
