"Change the Game" Program
Reimagine Your Packaging
Today’s consumers are smarter, more environmentally focused, more health conscious, more budget aware—more multi-faceted and independent—than any generation before. If your packaging is not attuned to each of the interests and concerns of today’s savvy shopper, it’s time to “Change the Game."
Garlock’s “Change the Game” program begins with shelf-life in mind. Why? Garlock feels called to do its part to reduce food waste above all else. Every year, one third of the food produced in the world for human consumption is lost or wasted. This alone contributes to an estimated 8-10% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Reducing this waste by a mere 25% would save enough food to feed 870 million hungry people around the world.1
We use Life Cycle Assessments (LCA) and APR Design® Guide† principles to help your team consider and optimize the packaging design to strike the best balance between package optimization goals (selection and use of materials), shelf-life requirements (that reduce food waste), and recycling/end-of-life considerations.
Time is of the essence. Let Garlock help you do your part in your efforts to reduce food waste, CO2 emissions, and landfill waste.
Let’s “Change the Game” together—it starts when you reach out to Garlock!
