Sustainability Challenge: Throwing Plastics Away When There is No Away II

European Wet Wipe Packaging Trends

In the final episode of the BBC’s documentary The Blue Planet II, albatross parents could be seen feeding plastic to their chicks. From here there was no going back, sparking the war on plastics!

For a sustainable future, a circular economy for plastic packaging should be everyone’s goal. In this presentation we’ll explore:

•     The change in attitude toward plastics and the importance of a circular economy.

•     The role and response of the Public, Retailers, Brand owners, Packaging Producers, NGO’s and Government.

•     What this all means for Wet Wipe packaging in the future.
