We at PRC believe that “Sustainable Packaging “ must not only be environmentally friendly but also human friendly. Therefore, this comprehensive report covers the latest advance in new material development including bio-plastics derived from plant sources, material reduction technology to create light packaging, recyclable and reusable packaging as well as innovations in consumer packaging design that makes it easier to use by all consumers including the elderly and disabled. Items for inclusion in the report have made considerable contributions in reducing petroleum and consumption, CO2 emissions and landfill waste and overall packaging and transportation costs while at the same time improving ease of use.

One such example is the sustainable packaging policy by “Coca-Cola System in Japan.” The system covers all aspects of the product's lifecycle from R&D through to eventual disposal and is based on the general principles of 3R (Reduce, Reuse & Recycle). Research into packaging weight reduction initially began back in the 1970s and resulted in a range of lighter bottles including the “Easy Hold Eco-Ru-Bottle” a 2 liter size PET bottle READ MORE >
