Living in a recycling world

Sustainability PAC PAC Packaging Consortium Packaging Consortium recycling sustainability The Life of a Package in a Sustainable Recycling World

PAC, Packaging Consortium serves up another tasty seminar: The Life of a Package in a Sustainable Recycling World.

The sustainability of a package today is no longer an afterthought.

Packagers and stewards are giving more attention to the recyclability of a package at the end of its use.

This is complemented by the evolution of extended producer responsibility schemes and the notion that sustainable development requires the proper management of a product for the full life cycle.

From an individual perspective, The Life of a Package in a Sustainable Recycling World produced by PAC, Packaging Consortium, takes a look at the life cycle of a package: from basic function, to marketing, and then through to end of life and finally rebirth.
