Today's consumers are at the forefront of a sustainability movement. "Sustainable", "compostable", and "earth friendly" continue to be top of mind for consumers, shaping their behavior and as a result, forcing brands to make more sustainable chioces with their product and packaging. They are the driving force behind the manufacturing and rise in sustainable packaging product options, ranging from the soft drink PlantBottle to mushroom packaging.
As sustainability continues to climb packaging agendas, tremendous progress has been made in a relatively short period of time to make eco-friendly part and parcel of the manufacturing process. Manufacturers are striving to make better use of resources while ensuring the sustainability of our natural systems.
