The Power of Plastic

Plastic plays a vital role in helping us combat climate change. Not only does it contribute to lower greenhouse gas emissions in production and transport, it also helps reduce food waste and spoilage, further reducing our carbon footprint during its life cycle. Independent studies consistently find plastics to have a lower carbon footprint than alternative forms of packaging.

    Reduce Food Waste

    When fresh goods are packaged in plastic, even in cases where the packaging is not recycled, they produce a smaller environmental footprint than their unpackaged counterparts.
