Regardless of how important it is or what it contains, it is not just what you are sending that matters, but also how you do it. One of the most important things when talking about packing is the question of safety, which has two sides, both of whom should concern you.

First one of these sides is the safety of your package and its content and the second is the safety of your shipment for the environment. None of these sides is insignificant and they both deserve your full and undivided attention.


Planning is Instrumental

Although to some, preparing things for shipping can seem as a thing that is as simple as it gets, the reality is often far from this. As anything else, in order to pack your shipment the way it should be packed, you need to devise a sound packing plan.

There are several things that you need to have in mind before you start packing. First, take special attention to the item that you are shipping and its specific nature. For example, you will surely not pack a painting in a same way in which you would pack a computer or a piece of clothing. No matter how simple and obvious this may seem now, you would be surprised how many people manage to oversee it.

The second thing that you should always think of is the size of the shipment, its shape, as well as the distance and area to which it is about to travel. Mind all of this prior to your initiation of packing process and include it in your plan. These preparations will almost completely ensure that you are on the right track, as far as your packing process is concerned.




Earth in Mind

Since the world that we live in, was never more endangered by all the litter and pollution, the only way for us and our planet to get back on feet is for everyone to pull their own weight.

Now, when talking about this, the first thing in everyone’s mind are the notions of driving hybrids or recycling and while all this is good, I see no reason why packing your shipments in eco-friendly manner would be a bad place to start.

In packing your shipment, make sure that you use containers made out of eco-friendly, renewable materials. These materials are made out of virgin or recycled plastic, sturdy wood or metal and are resistant to moisture and various forms of chemicals. Also, in a recent interview with people behind Axis Packaging, I found out that these eco-friendly packages are also quite economical since, unlike ordinary cardboard boxes, they can be used more than once.


Adhering to the Situation at Hand

All of this, however, does not mean that you should necessarily go at great lengths to find safe and eco-friendly ways of packing.

The key thing are the very properties of the item that you want shipped, so the smaller and less fragile your it is, the more options you have. With this in mind, do not be afraid to explore some of the less conventional packaging solutions and materials. Put some old clothes, newspapers or wrapping paper and while packing your shipment, save the planet along the way.



Although some people claim that interstellar travel and colonization of other planets will be possible in the nearest future, today, we have only one home- planet Earth.

It is exactly because of this, that we owe it to our planet to try and save her, and hope that we will get to do it in time. Still, for all of this to work, everyone must do their part and changing the way you pack your shipment seems as good place as any to start.
