Welcome to PlasticPackagingFacts.org, brought to you by The American Chemistry Council. This resource answers the simple question: Why Plastic Packaging?

Today’s plastics can be shaped in thousands of ways to serve myriad purposes, from air bags to cell phones. This adaptability serves today’s packaging needs, from merchandising to product protection to recycling.

Here you’ll find lots of helpful information on the makeup of plastics, their use in packaging, and their role in the environment. There’s already lots of information available on these topics – this site brings it together in one place to make it easier to explore, research, and learn.
