Uncertainty can taint the move over to greener solutions, due to possible cost implications but research has shown that brands that take on corporate responsibility for the planet, have in fact increased sales. Thus, eco-friendly packaging could boost sales, whilst setting an excellent example for other brands waiting to make the leap.

There is now an alternative that outperforms double walled boxes.
