Being green is a massive part of who we are; because we are a sustainable marketing agency. We are a multi-faceted agency at CuCo Creative, so when we design dazzling packaging design we know it’s essential to make it as eco-friendly as possible.

To do this, we ensure all our print partners are FSC accredited. On top of this, using compostable and recyclable materials at all times is a given, as well as using biodegradable vegetable inks.   

To a lot of people, the FSC seems just like a load of sustainable mumbo jumbo, but it plays a vital part in our packaging design.

What is the FSC?  

Founded in 1994, The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international, non-governmental organisation that promotes responsible management of the world’s forests. Since the FSC’s foundation, they have become the world’s most respected and widespread forest certification system. 

The FSC confirms that the forest is being managed in a way that preserves biological diversity and benefits the lives of local people and workers while ensuring it sustains economic viability. 

In short, the FSC ensure principles over a broad range of issues, from maintaining high conservation values to communist to relations and workers’ rights, as well as monitoring the environmental and social impacts of forest management.  

To become FSC accredited, you have to check their sustainable checklist and comply with checks by the FSC themselves, which ensures the management of an eco-friendly forest.  

Why do we use only FSC-accredited print partners?

We’ve always cared about green issues as an agency, and customers and clients do too! In a recent survey, 95% of UK participants said it was essential for them to ensure that the products they purchase are eco-friendly and sustainable, with 22.8% arguing it was extremely important. In a world where “greenwashing” is becoming increasingly used to capitalise on eco-conscious customers, eco-friendly certifications like the FSC are increasingly important. 

The lines between us being a marketing agency and a packaging design agency cross as we merge sustainable packaging design, eco-friendly marketing, and green digital together.

The reasons why we use FSC-accredited print partners are simple. We’re all about creating a sustainable planet, and using eco-friendly certifications is just one of many ways we achieve this as an agency. We love being part of our client’s sustainable journeys, which both their customers and themselves take great pleasure in, from marketing campaigns to website design to packaging design. 

I care about the planet too!
