FPA's Flexible Packaging End-of-Life Management Position

The FPA published its "End-of-Life Position" for flexible packaging. The flexible packaging industry has a great opportunity to educate stakeholders and impact public opinion on the benefits of flexible packaging. Flexible packaging also creates a smaller environmental footprint when compared to alternative packaging types considering all impacts throughout a package’s life cycle. Flexible packaging requires less energy to manufacture and transport, which reduces greenhouse gas emissions and fossil fuel usage. It also uses less water in manufacturing and has a high product-to-package ratio.
