Re-Thinking Packaging as a Sustainable Profit Center
Kelly Williams, Sustainability Strategist, Futamura Group/NatureFlex Films
There is so much talk these days about “sustainability” and the “circular economy” that many are starting to wonder what that means, exactly. There are large forces to keep status quo of pumping millions of tons of plastic into packaging and relying on hopes and prayers that it can be collected and repurposed downstream. This presentation will give context to the facts regarding single-use packaging and will dissect the circular economy, followed by the solution to the problem. The solution is inside a single truth that packaging has never been a cost center; it is every bit an unrecognized profit center. In fact, it is a physical form of social media.
