Sustainable packaging? Interview with Vivian Loftin

Published by Mountainblog on .

What should the outdoor industry know about sustainable packaging?

Packaging is used to protect outdoor products during transport from manufacturer to consumer and, although its environmental impact is small compared to that of the product inside, it is often the first contact the consumer has with the product and can therefore play a significant part in reinforcing the product’s sustainable credentials. In this interview, Vivian Loftin, packaging expert and an industry representative  presents the concept of sustainable packaging, the impact of material choice versus waste handling systems, and how best the industry can address their packaging.
