Household Care Packaging Trends - UK - January 2014

Younger people are particularly likely to voice green or ethical sentiments but not act upon these beliefs, so more initiatives are needed from manufacturers to reduce confusion about recycling and increase the purchasing of more environmentally friendly packaging formats.
