Consumer Packaged Goods

consumer packaging and product designThe adaptability of plastic packaging allows it to meet a variety of needs for consumer goods. As packaging moves from design phase through recovery/disposal, the varying types of plastics and their unique properties offer many choices for the decisions that are made along the way:

  • Color
  • Weight
  • Size
  • Shape
  • Utility
  • Printing
  • Protection
  • And more

Plastics help bring home more product with less packaging. Plastic packaging in general is lightweight and strong. Different plastics can be molded, extruded, cast, and blown into seemingly limitless shapes and films or foams. This resourcefulness often delivers while using minimal resources, creating less waste, consuming fewer resources, and creating fewer CO2 emissions than alternative materials. Plastics make packaging more efficient, which ultimately conserves resources.
