How we can help you to go circular
- SQ1 reviews the sustainability of current packaging and provides guidance or project manages the R&D, technical sourcing of new packaging and implementation of changes with production.
- SQ1 works with brand and packaging designers (to ensure packaging is functional, practical, has great user experience, is cost effective, and is designed with end-of-life in mind).
- SQ1 helps businesses get into product stewardship schemes if their packaging may not be recyclable via kerbside collection*.
- SQ1 offers sustainable packaging guides/resources and online/in-person training.
