What Can Be Done?
So what can we do to solve this? First and Foremost is to increase pressure on Packaging Companies and businesses. Many companies do not do enough both in terms of the packaging they supply and the packaging they buy. Suppliers of packaging need to take more responsibility both in the education to their customers and the actual packaging they supply. To be fair, some of the largest companies such as Etechdiary and Packaging Chimp have already done this and make it clear on their websites but more need to follow suit and more needs to be done.
