As consumer demand for more environmentally friendly packaging continues to grow, more brand owners are making a commitment to sustainable packaging. A panel discussion at this year’s WestPack show — which will be co-located with Plastec West, MD&M West, ATX West, and D&M West — will highlight sustainability issues influencing the choice of plastic and/or paper packaging. The five-show event will be held at the Anaheim Convention Center, August 10 – 12, 2021. The panel discussion, “Paper or Plastic (or Both)? Selecting Materials for True Sustainability in Packaging,” will take place on WestPack’s center stage on August 10 at 2 p.m. Panelists will discuss the complexities of determining a packaging material’s sustainability and finding the optimal balance between sustainability and functionality. Package end-of-life scenarios and the role of chemical recycling will be among the topics covered.
