Do you value sustainability when it comes to your choices as a consumer? Survey results reveal that consumers want more sustainable packaging and expect companies to be more transparent.
The survey interviewed 2.000 adults and revealed that the vast majority (82%) believe companies use too much or excessive packaging when delivering or selling in-store products. Almost half of those who took part stated that Amazon is the worst brand for creating excess packaging. Additionally, 78% want more to be done by larger companies in order to promote sustainable packaging, up by 16% from last year. Over the last 12 months, consumers’ behaviour towards packaging and recycling has also changed significantly.
The number of people keeping their leftover packaging for other purposes once it has fulfilled its original purpose, such as wrapping their gifts, has increased. 30% of respondents stated that if they were to receive an order with excess packaging, it would off put them from ordering from the company again. Consumers expect companies to become more transparent with their sustainability efforts.
