Innovations in Sustainable Packaging – Webinar 4 May
Packaging is more than just a package, particularly when you’re trying to optimise sustainability without sacrificing performance. Sustainable packaging expert Alexandra Uribe, founder of boutique sustainability consulting agency Co2ral, will discuss her approach. She will cover: Life-cycle analysis (determining how a product will be used, then the packaging disposed of, at the end of its life); Packaging design (maximizing utility and visual appeal while minimizing materials); Material selection (Selecting sustainable materials which get the job done); and Customer communication (explaining the sustainability benefits of purchasing a specific product).
Broadcast live on Wednesday 4 May 11h NYC time with IFSCC Education Chair Perry Romanowski chairing.
