In its upcoming episodes, In View with Larry King will take viewers inside the packing industry to explore new advancements in sustainable packaging. The show will report on the efforts companies are making to green the supply chain.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), packaging is responsible for up to one-third of the nonindustrial waste in developed countries. In the U.S., 99% of the total material flow becomes garbage within 6 months. With this growing waste problem, U.S. consumers have shifted priorities in purchasing; preferring eco-friendly products and recycled packaging. More U.S. companies are responding to this trend through the use of sustainable packaging with their products.
In View with Larry King will take a look at recent innovations in packaging that manufacturers are adopting to lessen their burden on the environment.
