Choosing the right materials for packaging can become tricky with the number of different options available. At EcoPackables, we keep things simple; all our materials are either recycled, recyclable, or compostable. It’s important to note though - there is no silver bullet in packaging. While we’d love to claim all the materials below are perfect, this is far from true. Each material has its pros and cons, which we’ve carefully vetted. This list of materials is constantly changing as we encounter new innovations in material science. You can rest assured though that these are the most sustainable options available on the market. 

The films and boards below are heavily customizable and available as finished packaging products, or as films that can run on existing film-converting machinery.
