Summary

Eighteen months on from the airing of Blue Planet II, and the UK’s trend towards sustainability continues to gather speed. The Future of Packaging special report, published in The Times covers how sustainable packaging, and particularly the search for non-plastic alternatives, remains high on the agenda. This can be seen in a new focus on the supply chain, government initiatives to improve recycling, and the rise of pioneers of eco-friendly solutions. The report also explores a new emphasis on experience, championed by direct-to-consumer brands and companies who are embracing inclusive design to make packaging more accessible to blind and disabled people. Also featured is comment on why plastic should not be considered a villain and an infographic looking at the real drivers behind sustainable packaging
