Consumers are paying close attention to where their pets’ food comes from—and what it’s packaged in. The pet food packaging segment is stepping up to meet the industry’s needs.
The idea of sustainability has permeated nearly every facet of business. The larger issues of climate change and concern for the environment have resulted in consumers looking more carefully than ever at their impact on the Earth, including what they buy, how they buy it and who they buy it from. The pet food industry is certainly not immune to the pressures of passing the sustainability test, and as manufacturers do their best to meet customer expectations, packaging companies are focusing on what they can do, both to help manufacturers meet their goals and to satisfy consumers with the results of their own products.
Extensive changes in the manufacturing of paper and plastic have occurred over the past few decades. EPA figures indicate that paper manufacturing increased more than 300 percent from 1960 to 2013. The data for plastics present an even more startling contrast, with plastic generation increasing more than 7,000 percent during the same time period. More than 1 million tons of the paper generated in 2013 consisted of paper cups and plates, virtually all of which were discarded. More than 800,000 tons of plastic cups and plates were generated that same year, with most ending up in the trash.
PE Coating on paper is not compatible with end of life operations. The paper biodegrades leaving fine line PE to pose huge damage to Life on Earth. Replacing the PE with bio based and fully biodegradable PLA coatings offer the value proposition of a reduced material carbon footprint.
