Plastic Packaging Innovations

For decades plastics have driven innovation in packaging design.

From tamper resistant medicine packaging to the new Heinz dip/squeeze packet, plastic helps drive innovation and is a leading material in creating effective packaging solutions for a variety of needs.

The packaging stream is evolving. Resource efficient flexible plastic packaging provides outstanding product protection in innovative formats. Currently, in North America, flexible plastic packaging is not typically accepted in recycling programs. As the expectation for full lifecycle management of packaging increases, it is important that the related industries take part in the foundation of future solutions to provide effective and economic recovery options for flexible plastic packaging.
