Climate, carbon, collaboration, and community.
Packaging Digest celebrates Earth Day 2021 with a special episode of Packaging Possibilities, a “what if” podcast for forward-looking packaging professionals.
I’ve been doing some heavy thinking — and I expect you will, too — about my conversation with Nina Goodrich, director of the Sustainable Packaging Coalition (SPC), the leading voice on sustainable packaging. Goodrich is also the executive director of SPC’s parent, GreenBlue, which is a nonprofit dedicated to the sustainable use of materials in society.
She challenges us to think differently about packaging sustainability today — in light of so many global challenges that nations, including the US, now face.
In this 28-minute podcast, Goodrich muses on these, and other, important matters:
• How, and why, is this Earth Day different from others in the past?
• What does our country’s return to The Paris Agreement on climate change mean for sustainability moving forward, and specifically for packaging sustainability?
• What plans does SPC have for Earth Day 2021? (spoiler alert: they are super-duper)
