Sparkle Responsibly: Shift from Gold Foiling to Sustainable Packaging for the Festive Season

As the festive season approaches, businesses like sweet shops, patisseries, and bakeries aim to create attractive packaging that captures the spirit of celebration. While gold foiling has been the go-to choice for a luxurious touch, it's time to shift our perspective. Opting for sustainable alternatives not only shows environmental responsibility but also makes good business sense. By reducing resource-intensive production, minimising chemical waste and energy consumption, promoting recyclability, and cutting costs, embossing and laser cutting offer eco-friendly options that retain premium aesthetics. Let sustainability shine this festive season, attracting environmentally conscious customers and making a positive impact on the planet.


Sustainable and Festive: Choosing Eco-Friendly Paper Options

Eco-Friendly Coated Paper by Go Do Good

While metallic paper adds a shimmering and luxurious touch, its production has harmful effects on the environment. Increased resource consumption, chemical use, limited recycling, and energy consumption make it crucial to explore eco-friendly alternatives that still capture the festive feel.

Textured, handmade, tree-free, and coloured papers offer sustainable options. Crafted from recycled materials, with fewer chemicals and the ability to be recycled, they provide versatility, artistic appeal, and cost-efficiency. By opting for these alternatives, we can support sustainability and make a positive impact without compromising on premium aesthetics.



Wrap with a Conscience: Discover Eco-Friendly Alternatives to Satin Ribbons


Satin ribbons may be visually appealing and versatile but their production and use raise environmental and sustainability concerns. Silk satin involves the use of chemicals and raises ethical issues. Polyester satin depletes resources, generates waste, and is non-biodegradable, making recycling difficult. To address these concerns, we should consider eco-friendly ribbon alternatives. Options such as organic cotton, hemp, bamboo fiber, and jute ribbons are biodegradable, sustainable, and visually appealing. Handmade ribbons also offer unique textures and aesthetics. Let's make sustainable choices to celebrate the season and support the environment

We offer a tape-free packaging that is leak-proof, moisture-proof, tamper-proof, and environmentally friendly. Together, let's make a positive impact one package at a time.

  • Occupy larger spaces and hence create a problem with the storage
