We are working in collaboration with innovative companies to improve the design and efficiency of plastic packaging and products… and to make plastics easier to recover and repurpose. Smarter, lighter design will help further minimize the environmental footprint of plastic packaging and make it easier to collect, sort, and repurpose used plastics.
Plastics already contribute substantially to sustainability. They make our cars safer and more fuel efficient, they make our homes more energy efficient, and they protect all of us in essential ways every day. And plastic packaging makes our food supply safer and helps reduce food waste. And because plastics are lightweight and strong, they help reduce the environmental impact of consumer packaging and products that we all rely on.
But plastics do not belong in our natural environment.
