The USA’s As­so­ci­a­tion

for Pack­ag­ing and Pro­cess­ing Tech­nolo­gies (PMMI) says its lo­cal in­dus­try – par­tic­u­larly food and bev­er­age, house­hold and per­sonal care, and health­care pack­ag­ing seg­ments – are adopt­ing sus­tain­able prac­tices to meet the in­creased de­mand of con­sumers. The Break­ing Down Sus­tain­able Pack­ag­ing in­fo­graphic pur­ports to show this trend and PMMI’s di­rec­tor of busi­ness in­tel­li­gence, Paula Feld­man says the body is see­ing more green op­tions in pack­ag­ing – re­cy­clable, reusable and degrad­able – as man­u­fac­tur­ers re­duce source ma­te­rial cre­at­ing lighter pri­mary and sec­ondary pack­ag­ing thus re­duc­ing waste. “We ex­pect this prac­tice to in­crease in the com­ing years as CPGs strive to meet con­sumer de­mand,” she states.
