Understanding Recyclable, Biodegradable, and Compostable Packaging

During discussions with current and potential clients, it’s not unusual for brand owners to say they’re looking for Eco-friendly packaging options.

In an earlier blog, Recycling, Packaging, and the Environment, we discussed the importance of considering the life cycle of a given type of packaging, especially when clients are looking to reduce landfill waste or create fewer greenhouse gasses. In this post, we’ll analyze Eco-friendly terms and their relationship to packaging options.
