In current widespread media, there has been a public backlash against plastic packaging and the damage it causes to the environment. Specifically the use of black plastic (black Cpet ready meal trays) as the carbon black in the colour doesn't allow the plastic to be detected in the recycling plants and separated out for recycling - thus it causes the issue. It is a great time for cartonboard packaging and the circular economy it can create. Please see the web link for a detailed breakdown of the sustainability of cartons and cartonboard.
