The past few years have seen an enormous rise in consumer consciousness when it comes to sustainability, whether it be learning about waste from production or realizing the detriment caused by plastic packaging, because of the wide-spread rise of environmental concern. The packaging industry is under more pressure than ever to become as environmentally friendly as possible without sacrificing the quality of their products.
This article by Packaging Strategies provides insight onto packaging trends to consider for 2020, a year that will likely be huge for eco-friendly packaging. They go into detail on topics like reducing plastic use by reusing items or turning to alternative products, the increase in e-commerce orders for package products, and challenges with supply chain.
