    2024-03-13 Adjustable Box: The Future of Sustainability, Efficiency, and Innovation
    With the continuous development of the global economy, the packaging industry is also advancing rapidly. In this age of information explosion, consumer demands for products are becoming increasingly diverse and personalized. At the same time, the strengthening of environmental awareness is driving the packaging industry towards a more sustainable direction. However, traditional packaging boxes face some challenges in meeting these demands. Currently, the packaging industry faces many issues, one of which is how to better adapt to the size and shape of products. Traditional packaging boxes are often fixed in size, while products come in various shapes and sizes. This results in gaps inside the packaging boxes, increasing packaging costs and reducing packaging efficiency. Additionally, the space occupied by packaging boxes during transportation and storage is also a concern, especially for e-commerce and logistics industries, where space utilization efficiency directly affects costs and benefits. To address current packaging issues, YUTOECO has innovatively developed an adjustable box. The unique feature of this packaging box is its adjustable size (length or width), which can flexibly adapt to products of different sizes and shapes, reducing gap filling and greatly improving packaging efficiency. At the same time, its adjustable design minimizes volume when not in use, optimizing storage and transportation space, improving transportation efficiency, and reducing costs. This innovation not only brings economic benefits but also has a positive impact on the environment because reduced transportation space also means reduced carbon emissions, contributing to climate change mitigation. Moreover, this box is made of durable corrugated paper material, which can be reused multiple times and is suitable for products of various shapes, further enhancing its sustainability and lifespan. Finally, if the adjustable box reaches the end of its life cycle after multiple reuses, it can be recycled, allowing it to be reused in a resource-friendly manner. In summary, our adjustable box is not only a revolution in traditional packaging but also a commitment to environmental protection, efficiency, and innovation. We believe that with the widespread application of adjustable boxes, it will bring new vitality and possibilities to the future development of the packaging industry.

SATINE, as a practitioner and leader in sustainable development, has been committed to providing consumers with more environmentally friendly and lower-carbon green products. In 2022, the "100% Plant Fiber Milk Ball" produced by YUTOECO for SATINE, was launched on the "National Low Carbon Day," powerfully leading the trend of green and low-carbon living. Following the Plant Fiber Milk Ball, at the beginning of the New Year in 2024, SATINE surprises with the "Hulunbuir Winter Prairie Limited Edition Eco-friendly Gift Box"! 01. Inspired by the Hulunbuir Winter Prairie to Interpret a Good Organic Life YUTOECO has always advocated the concept of "turning waste into treasure, efficiently utilizing natural resources," aligning perfectly with SATINE's principle of "taking from nature, giving back to nature." The designer used the "winter prairie" as a visual scene, with natural bagasse and bamboo fiber as raw materials. The box is environmentally friendly with no printing or ink, and it naturally degrades after use, returning to nature. This winter limited edition eco-friendly gift box highlights the brand's organic philosophy. 02. Integrated Design Balances Aesthetics and Functionality Traditional plant fiber packaging focuses more on protecting the product, but the weight of milk often requires additional tote bags for support. To solve this issue, in the exterior design, the designer deliberately added a handle to the gift box, giving it both protective and weight-bearing functions, perfectly maintaining the integrity of the gift box. Simultaneously, the semi-open structure is user-friendly for consumers. 03. Restore the Natural Ecological Texture of Nature With undulating shades, the pure white of ice and snow is fully displayed in the blank spaces, integrating the beauty of embossment process with plant fiber material to restore the purity and cleanliness of the Hulunbuir Winter Prairie. The designer has incorporated the concept of sustainable development throughout the entire gift box design, allowing for more possibilities and continuity in SATINE's subsequent seasonal limited edition gift box designs. A good prairie nurtures good organic milk, and good materials create excellent product packaging. YUTOECO assists SATINE in saluting the organic vitality on the winter prairie.

  • YUTOECO's Journey in Sustainable Food Packaging Innovation: Crafting Efficient, Eco-Friendly Solutions
    2023-12-19 YUTOECO's Journey in Sustainable Food Packaging Innovation: Crafting Efficient, Eco-Friendly Solutions
    Food packaging is a crucial industry; however, it is also facing escalating environmental challenges. The quantity of food packaging consumed annually is vast, and plastic food packaging constitutes a significant portion. According to statistics, nearly 40% of all plastics produced worldwide today are used for food and beverage packaging. While paper packaging is considered relatively environmentally friendly, it also presents a series of recycling challenges. For instance, the surface lamination is often difficult to separate and recycle. Additionally, the product and brand information on packaging currently mostly use fossil-based ink printing, which does not naturally degrade. Therefore, even using paper packaging, the ink itself can contribute to environmental pollution. Although there are continually new recyclable plastic packaging products entering the market, the current global plastic recycling system remains imperfect. Different types of plastics are challenging for recycling, resulting in a relatively low recycling rate for plastic packaging. Even in developed countries like the United States, the urban plastic recycling rate was only 5%-6% in 2021. As environmental awareness gradually increases today, there is an urgent need to find more sustainable food packaging solutions to mitigate adverse environmental impacts. YUTOECO, as a sustainability solution pioneer beyond packaging, offers a series of eco-friendly packaging solutions for the existing mainstream applications. For the catering industry, with the continuous expansion of the takeout business in recent years, the use of takeout packaging has significantly increased. Traditional takeout packaging is mainly made of plastic, which does not degrade under natural conditions. As the use of plastic containers increases, so does the environmental impact. To address this issue, YUTOECO adopts natural plant fibers such as bamboo and sugarcane to produce biodegradable packaging boxes for the takeout industry. These pulp-molded boxes fulfill all the requirements of takeout containers, including waterproof, greaseproof, and sealed properties. In response to the PFAS ban requirements in some countries, YUTOECO can also provide PFAS-free solutions to meet diverse customer needs. This molded pulp packaging effectively reduces the catering industry's dependence on traditional plastic containers, emphasizing environmental consciousness and promoting sustainable development in the catering sector. In addition to being applied in the takeout industry, these eco-friendly containers can also be used in areas such as retail, supermarkets, coffee roasting, and more. For fresh food packaging, it is often necessary to ensure the freshness of the food for an extended period. Due to the excellent performance of plastics, the majority of current fresh food packaging predominantly consists of an all-plastic design, resulting in a considerable amount of plastic waste and causing significant environmental po...
