The importance of green packaging design
In recent years, with the process of global industrialization and the rapid increase of packaging in the world, commodity packaging forms a large market so that packaging materials have a broad space for development, paper, plastic, metal, glass, and many other materials are widely used in a variety of packaging, in the convenience and benefits for people at the same time, most of the packaging materials are often arbitrarily discarded, but also to cause serious harm to the environment of human survival, Environmental protection has become an issue of great concern to people.

The vigorous development of green packaging materials and extensive development of green packaging is of particular importance, become the inevitable choice for the development of packaging in the world, and will become an inevitable trend in the development of the packaging industry
First, the needs of the international market
According to the data provided by the United Nations Statistics Department, 90% of Americans, 89% of Germans, and 84% of Dutch people will consider the environmental standards of products when purchasing goods. Therefore, respecting people's psychology of protecting the ecological environment and returning to nature, and not including ecologically destructive ingredients in packaging, is a major issue that must be taken into account in modern packaging.
