Nom­i­na­tions are open for the 2013 Un­packit Awards which seek to find the coun­try’s best and worst pack­ag­ing in terms of its im­pact on the en­vi­ron­ment. Statis­tics from the Pack­ag­ing Coun­cil show that 72kg of pack­ag­ing waste is thrown in the rub­bish per per­son, per year, but higher aware­ness of the prob­lem is chang­ing pro­duc­ers’ prac­tices – New World re­cently an­nounced a ban on poly­styrene pack­ag­ing for veges.
