The biggest problem with plastic packaging is that when consumers finish using a product, the package immediately becomes waste material, which when not disposed properly, ends up as a threat to the environment. Which is why, the need of the hour is to focus on improving the infrastructure to manage plastic.
The circular economy model of conservation involves an organised function of gathering plastic waste, segregating it and then processing it to be reused or recycled.
By making packaging easier to recycle – while also using more recycled material in new packaging – we can help keep materials in the value chain for a longer period of time.
Following this circular economy model of waste management is the best way to eliminate plastic waste and reduce the environmental impact of packaging.
