Impact of Circular Packaging & Recycling on Sustainability
1. Sustainable Packaging in a Circular Economy – 

Sustainable packaging is also known as “green packaging”. Sustainability focuses on meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. We need packaging, so we try to make it green packaging. The concept of sustainability is composed of three concepts. Economic, environmental and social—otherwise known as profits, planet, and people. When sustainable efforts are combined with a circular economy, the benefits grow exponentially.

2. Circular Economy Packaging and Recycling – 

The circular economy is an economic system aimed at eliminating waste and the continual use of resources. Sustainable packaging in a circular economy helps to guarantee that materials are included in a ‘closed-loop’ system, preventing harmful packaging materials from being used once and discarded. Closed circular systems include the Reuse, Sharing, Repair, Refurbishment, Remanufacturing and Recycling of items to minimize the creation of waste, pollution and carbon emissions. This is the economic/profit portion of sustainability.

3. Ocean Bound Waste – 

Ocean Bound Waste is waste, including plastic waste, that has not yet found its way into the ocean and is classified as “mismanaged waste”. That is, waste / plastic waste that is not being collected and not likely to be collected and is found on the ground within 50km of a waterway or coastal area. This is the environmental/planet portion of sustainability.

Proposed Solution:

Create an integrated collection system that turns mismanaged ocean-bound plastic into managed waste.

4. Circular Recycling – 

Recycling can be broken down into two areas. Recycling is the result of both a management system and the human factor. Recycling is the social aspect of sustainability. Recycling depends on the organized “management systems” in place in society such as blue box pick up and recycling programs in communities. Recycling is also dependent on “the human factor”. We are only effective if people utilize a program. People must actively sort and recycle their waste. This is the social / people portion of sustainability.

5. Clean up Campaigns – 

Picking up litter, such as Britain’s nation-wide Great Plastic Pick UP during May 2018 is another social /people aspect of sustainability. Although many agree that public cleanups do not address the root causes of ocean-bound waste, short-term campaigns do make a difference and lead to recycling and restoration of natural habitats. Re-use of social plastic such as R-PET used by Printex Transparent Packaging in products will help close the loop in the circular economy.
