Sustainable Packaging in Bulk

Sustainable Packaging in Bulk

In a world increasingly focused on environmental responsibility, businesses are seeking sustainable packaging solutions that align with their values. At EcoPackables, we understand the unique challenges of managing packaging at scale. This article provides insights into what qualifies as bulk, considerations for storage and shelf life, pricing discounts based on quantity, and the choice between DDP (Delivery Duty Paid) and EXW (Ex Works) shipping terms.

Defining Bulk Orders:

If your business is dispatching an impressive volume of around 2,500 orders per month, you've reached a pivotal milestone that qualifies you for our exclusive bulk pricing at EcoPackables. This is not just a numerical achievement but a testament to your commitment to sustainability on a larger scale. By hitting this mark, you're not only making a positive impact on the environment but also opening the door to exciting cost-effective possibilities. At EcoPackables, we're thrilled to support your growth with eco-friendly solutions that align seamlessly with your flourishing business. Welcome to the world of bulk benefits, where your commitment to sustainability meets economic efficiency!

Managing Packaging Inventory:

To streamline operations and minimize waste, it's crucial to determine how much packaging to hold at a given time. We recommend considering the shelf life and storage space for different types of sustainable materials:

  • Compostable Packaging: Aim to keep a 3-6 month supply to ensure freshness and prevent degradation.
  • Recycled Plastic and PCR Paper (Post-Consumer Recycled): These materials have a longer shelf life; therefore, holding a 6-12 month supply is advisable.

Pricing Discounts Based on Quantity:

As the quantity of your order increases, the cost per unit (CPU) decreases, providing a cost-effective solution for businesses looking to implement sustainable packaging on a larger scale. This tiered pricing approach encourages businesses to adopt environmentally friendly practices without compromising their bottom line.

DDP vs. EXW:

Choosing between DDP (Delivery Duty Paid) and EXW (Ex Works) shipping terms is a critical decision when ordering sustainable packaging in bulk.

  • DDP (Delivery Duty Paid): EcoPackables can handle the entire shipping process, including import duties and delivery to your specified location. This option provides convenience and ensures a hassle-free experience for our customers.
  • EXW (Ex Works): With EXW, customers are responsible for the entire shipping process, from arranging transport to handling import duties. While this option may offer more control, it requires a higher level of logistical involvement from the buyer.


Sustainable packaging in bulk is a strategic move for businesses committed to reducing their environmental footprint. At EcoPackables, our bulk offerings cater to the diverse needs of businesses, providing cost-effective solutions without compromising on quality or environmental sustainability. From defining what constitutes bulk orders to managing inventory, tiered pricing discounts, and shipping terms, we aim to empower our customers to make environmentally conscious choices while optimizing their operations.
