In little more than a century, plastic has gone from being a hero packaging material to one of the world’s greatest environmental problems. According to the EPA, approximately 70% of plastics in the US are destined to landfills, where they will take from 10 to 1000 years to decompose. By 2050, it’s projected there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish.
Food and beverage packaging accounts for almost two-thirds of total packaging waste. As consumers become more educated on the impact plastics have on the environment, they’re keen to hold businesses and their packaging standards to account. Companies are now more focused than ever on producing and packaging their products more responsibly.
