Stockport-based packaging manufacturer Macpac has launched a dedicated campaign delivering a personal and key sustainability message to its customers.
The customised newsletters will explore the changing packaging legislation policies and how these could affect a customer’s business. The company says that other matters will be discussed such as designing for sustainability.
The newsletter will cover such imminent new legislation as Extended Producer Responsibility or EPR, the Plastic Packaging Tax coming next April applying to plastic packaging that does not contain at least 30% recycled plastic, (Macpac assert that its packaging has a minimum of 80% recycled content). Other aspects covered will be the Deposit Return Scheme (DR) and increasing consistency in kerbside collection.
Macpac say that no one is doing what it is doing – this is going the extra mile with a dedicated section on their website covering designing packaging for sustainability and offering advice on the best choice of materials to empower customers to propose the best possible solutions to their clients.
Macpac say it has come up with key sustainability goals to reduce their environmental impact these include the use of recycled materials, efficient production, zero-waste-to-landfill, renewable energy, carbon footprint.
