Video: Ideas and Insights for Making Sustainable Products

Last month we caught up with our panel of sustainability experts to talk about how brands can make sustainable products a reality, not just a buzzword.  Our speakers, Will Davis, Director of Supply Chain at Anvyl, Rob Ianelli, CEO of Oceanworks, Brenden Bosworth, Director of Sales Operations at Paragraphics, and Linda Miles, CEO of Verde Cosmetics shared their insights on making sustainable paper packaging, ocean plastics, and fill.

In this video, you’ll learn how to gradually make your product more sustainable over time, what potential issues you could run into with sustainable packaging, and external factors to evaluate when creating sustainable products.

Overheard on the webinar

Some key takeaways from the video include the following:

“When you’re looking at costs, look at your total cost of goods sold, not just the packaging. Make sure to benchmark everything you are doing.” 

– Will Davis, Director of Supply Chain at Anvyl

“You don’t have to do 100% right away. Sustainability is a crawl, walk, run strategy.”

– Rob Ianelli, CEO of Oceanworks

“Not all paper is created equally. There may be limitations with print quality.”

– Brenden Bosworth, Director of Sales Operations at Paragraphics

“Look at your manufacturing facility. Talk to your suppliers and make sure they’re doing as much as they can.”

– Linda Miles, CEO of Verde Cosmetics
