Basketball is basically a sport that involves a ball and a basket including backboard, rim, and a net.

However, when March rolls around and it’s paired with Madness, there’s suddenly serious talk centered around other things like seeds, brackets, and pools. In other words, it’s a great time to be a college basketball fan.

We combine these two themes in a Final Four of Plastics Packaging, featuring the four top-read articles for the month determined by reader interest via website metrics.

Our seedings are listed below in alphabetical order; the results are presented in reverse order in the accompanying four-slide gallery.

  • Bioplastics News Stream;

  • Breaking News in Flexible Packaging March;

  • Canada’s Plastics Ban Has Its Day in Court (note the basketball reference); and

  • PET Bottles Have Smaller Environmental Impact than Glass and Aluminum Containers, Study Shows.
