Making the Packaging System Fit the Circular Economy

For the packaging industry to achieve a sustainable future, it needs to dramatically increase circularity and the reuse of materials. While shifting from a linear economy to a circular model will take time, there are already actions that brands, manufacturers, and converters can already take to help make a difference. This document by Siegwerk – a global leader in inks and coatings for packaging – delves into solving the plastic paradox, looks at the relevance of bioplastics, and sets out ways to not only achieve circularity in packaging but also make it economically viable. Furthermore, the document goes into detail on how printing inks and coatings are vital for enabling circularity in packaging. Ultimately, the packaging system needs to be reconfigured for a circular future. And consumers are expecting the packaging industry to play its part in progress.

As part of this partnership, Returnity will develop reusable packaging that will be protected with Polygiene’s ViralOff antimicrobial solvent.

Returnity Innovations CEO Mike Newman said: “What we do at Returnity is build out these reusable solutions and empower the broader systems necessary for companies to shift to the circular economy.

“By partnering with Polygiene, we are now able to create something that better addresses consumer needs in our world today.

“By creating this system that prioritises safety with antimicrobial coating for our packaging, we are providing a legitimate reusable option that the consumer can feel good about – from both a safety standpoint and an environmental one.”

According to the companies, this is the first initiative of its kind for the packaging industry and helps fight plastic waste due to the Covid-19 related challenges.

Polygiene ViralOff antimicrobial solvent helps prevent bacterial growth and keeps products fresh.

Polygiene CEO Ulrika Björk said: “Our vision is to change washing and disposal habits, and significantly reduce the environmental impact of a product.

“When we met Returnity, we realised that our objectives were aligned and that there was an opportunity to work together to further enhance their reusable boxes and bags by treating them with ViralOf.

“Anti-viral treatments have been a game-changer while navigating the pandemic and we believe that these treatments will become the new standard for reusables in the future.”

Returnity specialises in reusable shipping packaging, designing and manufacturing cost-effective and lightweight boxes and bags.
