Plastic waste continues to be a major concern, yet solutions aren’t always clear. What are companies and communities doing to address this? How can the public get information about what and where to recycle?
We answer these questions and also examine what plastic was originally intended to do, the needs it answers, and innovations in packaging. And we talk with industry experts about the concept behind a circular economy and the role that companies, retailers, organizations, and you can play in raising awareness about recycling.
