Sustainable Packaging For A Circular Economy
12 billion tons of flexible packaging end up in the trash each year, and recycling is not cutting it.
On a global scale, pulp fiber is more widely recycled then plastics. In fact, over 65% of paper and pulp is recycled annually compared to plastics (not including PET) which is less then 8% recycled annually. A primary reason that fibers are easier to recycle is because mixed paper can be processed, whereas mixed plastics cannot.
Keep in mind, pulp products also have less of an impact on the environment. They come from sustainable resources. This is substantial when comparing to plastics which are made from a by-product of petroleum.
Over 200 million tonnes of plastic stays in the environment every year, either as landfi ll or in the oceans, and it’s estimated that it will remain there for around 400 years.
