New Packaging Targets Emphasize Importance of Sustainable Plastics: Adpak Comments


Nelson, Lancashire -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/17/2015 -- An EU Commission meeting on the 2ndDecember has resulted in new packaging recycling targets. The move is apparently intended to streamline the process and work towards greater sustainability – as excessive product packaging is one of the key components of landfill every year.

The Commission put forward packaging recycling targets which are staggered - aiming for 65% by 2025 and 75% by 2030. It is expected that this will provide an important incentive for retail businesses to make more informed packaging choices. The Commission's decision has raised the publicity of sustainable, efficient packaging further – and therefore many customers will now be expecting a level of sustainability too.

A key example of an industry expert aware of the importance of recyclable packaging is Adpak. The business provides a range of shrink wrap machines; which can work with recycled plastic wrap. Furthermore, they endorse sustainability in the work they do – as by providing retailers with their own packaging machines, this reduces fuel emissions on transporting goods for separate packaging. A used machine service is also available, ensuring that equipment does not go to waste. A spokesperson had this to say:

"Following the Commission meeting it appears focusing on recycling is more important than ever. We want to urge businesses to realise that they can co-ordinate their packaging to fit these requirements; even if they use plastics! We support shrink wrap as a potentially sustainable choice, as it's air-tight fits cuts down on excess material and it can be part of recycling initiates in itself. The more businesses that consider these types of packaging, the easier it will be to fulfill these recycling aims."
