Marine pollution consumes plastic packaging’s sustainability story

This year, Packaging Digest researched community opinions about plastic packaging sustainability because it has captured so much attention around the world from consumers, organizations and governments today.

When it comes to plastics and sustainability, packaging professionals are hyper aware there is an attitude or perception problem—69% of respondents in the 2018 Sustainable Packaging Study feel a high level of environmental concern around plastic packaging. And much of that concern is centered around the visible and visceral problem of pollution in our oceans and waterways.
