Sustainable Recycling

An academic study published by the International Waste Working Group has focused on the circularity of packaging materials, components and products. A subject that is now finally being taken seriously by politicians and businesses to curb the negative environmental impacts caused by packaging life cycles. Sustainable packaging can reduce greenhouse gas emissions, environmental pollution, and depletion of natural resources.


But what does this all mean in real terms?


The European Commission is, for the second time, revising Europe's packaging and packagin waste directive. Although, the UK has left the European Union, strong trade ties mean that companies trading the Euro zone will need to be aware of these regulations. But these are just the tip of the iceburg as the study points to regulation and laws in both France and Spain that cover the lifecycle and reusablity of packaging.


The study can be found here: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.wasman.2023.04.049
