Put simply, we’re going to start seeing fewer plastics being used in the packaging industry. But why’s this? The government has announced that by April 2022, a new tax on the production of plastic packaging with less than 30% recycled material will be introduced.
Not only this, but the government has now introduced a ban on all single use plastics by 2021. With these new laws, the world is swiftly moving to an eco-friendlier way of packaging, and rightly so.
With increased production costs, new taxes coming in 2022 and the global drive to reduce plastic consumption, there has never been a better time to start substituting your plastic packaging for greener alternatives.
