Are plastics the enemy?

13 September 2019

Given the major focus on environmental issues and, in particular, the impact of single use plastics, the FPA (Flexible Packaging Association) commissioned significant research on the sustainability benefits that flexible packaging offers.  

They have identified areas where flexible pouches score well against other forms of packaging, including steel cans and other forms of plastic.  They highlight specifically, reductions in 
•    water consumption
•    greenhouse gas emissions
•    fossil fuel consumption

You can find out more about their research by downloading their brochure titled 'Sustain the World: the case for Flexible Packaging
