Major Brands Hype Sustainability Gains

The packaging community eagerly consumed sustainable packaging news from Frito-Lay, Absolut, Mars, Nestlé and others this spring.

It’s not surprising that Earth Day month generated a lot of interest in packaging sustainability. Top content from Packaging Digest in April 2022 revealed paper packaging winners, a compostable packaging promotion for salty snacks, and insight into the proposed Global Plastics Treaty.

One other can’t-miss story from last month — not directly related to packaging sustainability — talks about the current consumer-hated trend of packaging shrinkflation.

Three of the five top “articles” from April, based on page view metrics, were Packaging Possibilities podcasts. A time-saving secret is you can listen at 1.25 or 1.5 speed and still understand what we’re saying. Plus, for those who would rather read/scroll instead of listen, we also provide a transcript of the conversation. The transcript offers extra value, too, with photos, links, and quotes of key points.

Start the slideshow to see what exclusive packaging news and information you might have missed last month.
