New data shows that consumer demand for eco-friendly and sustainable product packaging has remained stable despite the societal changes in the past several years. This data is based on a survey conducted with over 15,000 consumers across North America, Europe, and South America on their beliefs and values related to sustainable packaging. The data provided includes the willingness to pay extra for more eco-friendly packaging, refillable packaging, and perceptions of materials.
This study reveals a consistent climb in younger consumers’ dedication to sustainable living. Consumers reinforced their commitment to sustainable packaging and continue to lead the way in rewarding brands for transitioning to sustainable packaging. Brands risk shrinking their market share when they do not meet the rising consumer demand for sustainable packaging.
Trivium Packaging CEO Michael Mapes explained, “brands that take a more holistic approach to sustainability by making packaging material part of their story can help align perceptions with reality and strengthen their sustainability credentials.”
Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area in the 60’s, Tom developed a strong desire to create positive change for people and planet.
He went on to pursue his passion for art and design at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, and worked for design firms in Southern California before moving to Boise, Idaho in the early 80’s. Foerstel Design opened its doors in 1985. Since its inception, the firm has cultivated a bold, happy, forward-looking team focussed on creating distinct and effective work on behalf of their clients.
An integral part of Tom’s philosophy is giving back to the community in which he lives — a company cornerstone that drives Foerstel’s long history of providing pro-bono services to local non-profit humanitarian and arts programs.
One of Tom’s proudest personal achievements is his ability to say Supercalifragilisticexpyalidocious backwards.
