9. Slim down your packaging

One way to cut costs and still stay green is to reduce the amount of packaging used. Work with your manufacturer to see what options you have to thin plastics or limit your materials to what is absolutely needed to ensure your product is secure. Extra packaging is a hindrance to your business as well as to the environment. Also, examine ways to condense your own product. For example experimenting with more concentrated versions of liquids like detergent could save you packaging costs without compromising your product’s integrity.
