Packaging in the context of sustainability in 21st century
Sustainability of packaging is one of the fragments of sustainability of the whole economic activity of producers of packaged goods. One of the tools is ecodesign as an effort to optimize packaging and its impact on waste management or the environment. At the same time, the basic functions of the packaging should not be overlooked.
At the same time, it is important to be aware of how the used packaging is actually handled. Sometimes, in an effort to change quickly and due to the lack of knowledge of packaging manufacturers, the promotion of such solutions, which at first sight appealing, may have an even worse impact than the original solution.
