Webinar – Reuse is the future of Packaging

Have questions or want to speak with us?

On the 6th July, we hosted our first ever webinar together with Kras Recycling; where we discussed the Circular Economy and how reuse is the future of Packaging.

Single-use packaging creates waste. Despite many efforts, waste mismanagement has become a significant global issue for our planet. Litter can be seen everywhere around us – trapped in fences along the roads, in fields, along hiking paths… Meanwhile, there is a misconception that Carboard is good and Plastic is bad. But is this really true? Or are there other lenses we should be looking through?

When choosing to adopt a Reuse packaging mindset instead of the current use-dispose-recycle packaging model, businesses realize that… The best waste is no waste!

Corplex & Kras Recycling offer solutions to companies willing to make the transition from the traditional Linear supply chain to a Circular Economy model for packaging. Naturally, switching to circular plastic solutions requires some organizational adjustments, but the effort is worthwhile.

Did you know that you could save up to 57% costs on your logistics expenses, and curb your scope 3 CO2 emissions by 32%?

In the webinar we discussed:

  • The benefits of Reusable and returnable Packaging from both an environmental impact and cost perspective.
  • What are the key business conditions which favour the switch to a Reusable Packaging model?
  • Critical capabilities and business partners to make Reuse work.
  • Benefits of Reusable Packaging from a cost and environmental impact standpoint.
  • The importance of cradle-to-cradle thinking in Packaging design.
  • How can Reusable Packaging make logistics processes more efficient.
