Today, the Pack Green Coalition, an initiative to replace unnecessary single-use plastic from supply chains, formally launched. Pack Green’s mission will focus on renewable and more sustainable alternatives, including paper and other bio-based solutions, with an emphasis on protective packaging and other short-term uses, such as food service items. “Consumers are more sensitive than ever […]
Founded in 2022, the Pack Green Coalition (“Pack Green”) is dedicated to replacing unnecessary plastic from the packaging—including protective and food service—supply chains with paper and other more sustainable and environmentally-friendly alternatives. Pack Green will perform three primary functions: 1) Increase public awareness of the existence of the plastics crisis and demonstrate that paper and other bio-based substrates represent sustainable, reliable, and cost-effective solutions in the context of delivery packaging; 2) Serve as a research hub to study and collect data on packaging and food service material, recycling, and consumer attitudes; 3) Engage with government officials—federal, state, and local—to advance the argument that unnecessary plastic should be removed from commerce and that paper is the premier sustainable solution in packaging. Pack Green will also drive policies that are in the best interests of not only the paper, bio-based packaging, and forestry industries, but of the planet’s health as well.
