Albany, New York (PRWEB) October 27, 2012
Key factors encouraging the move towards green packaging include growing awareness about carbon emissions, energy consumption and waste reduction targets implemented by different nations, rapidly growing economies, a dearth of natural resources, and consumers' preference for eco-friendly products. Worldwide, the waste generated because of production and transportation of packaging materials has impacted the environment considerably over the past few years. The condition is grim in the UK, where 5.91 million tonnes of packaging waste is estimated to be generated each year, representing approximately 20.1% of all waste. Manufacturers are thus continuously trying to use environmentally friendly packaging materials, which further support the growth of green packaging market.
