What can suppliers and brands do to make PET and other plastic bottles better for the environment?
We’ve collected seven different examples that represent new approaches that make a sustainable difference. These include lightweighting bottles through reengineered threads, turning them into luggage, making them label-less, and gaining hard-fought certification that assures bottle recyclability.
Among the featured companies are suppliers Amcor and Ring Container along with brand owners Beiersdorf, Cove, Hormel Foods, and Solo.
