From multi-layer films to help protect fertilizer, soil and seed, to thermoformed rigid tubs of premixed concrete, gardening pots and containers, plastics are behind many durable home and garden packaging solutions. Brand owners rely on plastics for their protective properties and adaptability.
Throughout the industry, source reduction efforts have pushed some products from rigid tubs to multi-layer packaging applications. For example, Ampac produced a flex pouch seed package to replace a heavier weight option. Lightweighting efforts continue as brand owners look toward increasingly innovative, light weight multi-layer solutions from the plastic packaging industry.
