Plastic is clogging the world's rivers and oceans, so why not showcase your designs using eco-friendly, biodegradable paper, and cardboard packaging? This set includes eight PSD files, with well-organised layers and smart objects, so it's easy to upload your designs in Photoshop and see the results in seconds.
Eco-friendly designs should also be stylish and contemporary, and this paper mockup is a perfect example. You get five different mockups, so it's easy to show your packaging from multiple angles. Impress your clients with this elegant eco mockup.
Of course, the most eco-friendly type of packaging is no packaging at all. But customers are going to need bags, and a stylish, reusable paper bag like this one is better than adding more throwaway plastic to the world's problems. Share your designs using the two different views in this easy-to-use paper bag PSD mockup.
Eco Bag Mockup PSD (PSD)
People who want eco-friendly bags will also probably appreciate nature-inspired designs, so the example here makes perfect sense. Of course, you'll replace it with your own unique design, but you can definitely use this pattern as inspiration.
Cloth Pouch Mockup (PSD)
Try this cute cloth pouch mockup if you want to sell small items like jewellery in a fun, custom-made piece of cloth packaging. The items around it give it a clear autumn/Halloween vibe, which could work perfectly for a seasonal sale.
Eco Paper Bag Mockup PSD (PSD)
If you sell fresh-roasted coffee beans or another product that could fit in this beautiful paper bag, then this eco bag mockup PSD set is ideal for you. You get 12 different mockups to choose from, with separated shadows and reflections, a removable and editable sticker, and many more customisation options. Check it out!
Those old styrofoam containers for takeaway food are terrible for the environment. Here's an eco-friendly alternative, using recycled and recyclable card. And don't you just love how well the logo stands out on the top? Add your own logo and see how it looks!
Eco Mockup Tags (AI, EPS, JPG)
One aspect of packaging that's often overlooked is the tags. They're a great opportunity not just to use eco-friendly materials but to tell customers what they're getting, with a message like "100% natural". Edit this set in Illustrator and see what you can create to enhance your eco-friendly credentials.
Plastic bottles are another scourge on the environment. People around the world use a million of them per minute, and they go straight into the landfill (or, worse, into rivers and oceans). So why not offer a better alternative with this reusable steel bottle, and give it a fabulous design to boot!
Eco Friendly Shoebox (PSD)
It's not just the materials themselves that are the problem—the intense use of paints and dyes can also use up precious resources and in some cases lead to harmful chemicals leaching into the soil. So here's a plain cardboard alternative, with just a simple label to communicate your message. See how well it stands out against all that negative space?
Canvas Bag MockUp PSD (PSD)
Canvas bags can be used again and again, which is great for the environment—and it also gives you a chance to have your designs seen repeatedly instead of being thrown straight in the trash. Try this easy-to use canvas bag mockup PSD file to see how your designs would look on canvas.
Paper Bag PSD Mockups (PSD)
Some paper mockups show your packaging in use, while others display the bag or box on a plain background to avoid distractions. This one falls into the latter category, so if you want all eyes to be on your design, try it out.
Eco Bag Mockup PSD (PSD)
We definitely need to save planet Earth right now, but people also need to carry their goods. Use this carry bag mockup to show your brand or display an eco-conscious message—or both!
Use this eco bag mockup PSD file if you want to sell coffee, loose-leaf tea, or another herbal product. It's easy to edit the mockup in Photoshop and showcase your packaging design to clients.
