Like the company observed by Robin, Nashville Wraps will continue to be smart and on trend in the selection of gift and retail packaging products. We want our customers in every market to feel good about their packaging; environmentally, socially, and economically.
A few key points are:
1. Baby Boomers want to leave the world a better place and young adults want to grow old in a good environment, plus children are being brought up in an eco-conscious system. The right packaging is an important part of your branding and can help you identify with customer concerns. Sustainable packaging like Green Way TM products can be an easy addition to your brand identity.
2. People are changing how they live in a way that would be hard to revert back and they genuinely believe that they need to make a difference. Therefore sustainable and reusable packaging is becoming more and more important. Products like Reusable Totes for instance are becoming the new standard.
3. Customers are buying if the products are smart, functional, and provide a lasting value; especially if they can identify with and feel good about the brand.
