Packaging Digest · Reusable Packaging Scales Up Despite 2020 Challenges


The Loop reusable packaging initiative, while still not fully self-supporting, is advancing globally online and in physical stores with the support of major (and minor) consumer packaged goods companies (CPGs), retailers, and other partners. The global circular shopping platform launched last year by TerraCycle.

In this 20-minute podcast, environmental visionary and TerraCycle CEO Tom Szaky tackles questions from Packaging Digest Executive Editor Lisa McTigue Pierce about Loop’s recent national expansion in the US, the COVID-19 impact, his plans for the near future, and packaging lessons learned by supporting brand owners. Recorded on October 12, 2020.
