The latest issue of Inside Packaging, Packaging Gateway’s digital magazine, which focuses on solving sustainability is out now. Read it for free online on all devices.

Packaging is without doubt a vital part of consumers’ everyday lives, however the success or failure of a box, carton or wrapper in 2022 goes beyond how it protects the product within. Consumers care about the material’s credentials, the amount of energy required throughout the supply chain process and whether it can ultimately be reused as part of a circular loop or at least decompose naturally within the earth.  

Inside Packaging’s Solving Sustainability issue uncovers both consumer and packaging professionals’ attitudes towards ‘good plastics’ versus alternative packaging materials as well as how innovative letterbox packaging is easing concerns over the carbon cost of home delivery. Plus, we reveal whether the UK Government’s recent plastic packaging tax can really improve sustainability within the sector.  

We also ask the experts to share their opinions on how the big laundry sector can become more eco-friendly, the innovations helping to reduce food waste and how reCommerce is reshaping Gen Z’s attitudes towards packaging and sustainability. 

Finally, we uncover the five packaging myths that are continuing to hold the sector back.  

Read the latest issue of Inside Packaging Magazine for all this and more insights, analysis, data and interviews from the apparel industry.
