What’s Hot in Plastic Packaging?

A devastating decision, a questionable pouch, and a pact and global treaty all made our shortlist as the most-read news in plastic packaging thus far in 2022.

The first half of the year that ended on June 30 is the perfect time to see what articles resonated best with those interested in plastic packaging news and information.

Determined through website analytics, all content in the Top 5 crossed a significant milestone.

If there’s any theme beyond packaging in the list, it would be diversity — the top-read news in this slideshow gallery is a mixed bag of content. These ranged from a devastating waste-to-fuel decision, to expert musings on a questionable cereal pouch, to a major new global treaty in the war on plastics.

However, before revealing the Top 5, there were two regularly updated “live streams” of atypical content that continue to draw high reader interest: a Bioplastics News Stream and a newsfeed of Breaking News in Flexible Packaging.

Now to the Top 5 in reverse order, starting with news about an ExxonMobil facility.
