Consumers want Companies and Governments to Address Plastic Waste and other Sustainability Issues

According to a November 6, 2019 Smart Brief report which summarizes a Hartman Group report, titled “Sustainability 2019: Beyond Business as Usual” “… packaging, particularly its disposal, is now seen as a primary way in which consumers can mitigate their personal environmental footprint … 91% of consumers either aspire to make or already are making efforts to reduce how much plastic they throw away … 51% of consumers now cite the environment as their major reason for purchasing sustainable or socially responsible products … Consumers are asking themselves, ‘Is momentary convenience worth creating a piece of waste that never breaks down?’ … Consumers now see packaging, like climate change, as a collective problem that requires action from government, companies and individuals alike … consumers [are] hungry for leadership within the realm of sustainability …” - Summarized by Jack Cooper of the Animal Digestible Food Packaging Initiative – – Text to 301 384 8287 – #SingleUsePlastics #FoodPackaging #PlasticWaste #PlasticPackaging #MicroPlastic #Recycling
