Recycle BC, Stewardship Ontario and MMSW (Saskatchewan) - all members of the Canadian Stewardship Services Alliance - recently uploaded their 2019 packaging EPR fees. Almost all fees are raising, with many categories experiencing significant changes.
According to a new study by QuadPackaging and Package InSight, 50.7 percent of consumers answered that a clear and simple rating system for sustainable packaging would affect their purchase decisions – but 92 percent of participants did not notice the sustainability rating logo.
The checklist is part of PAC's sustainability initiative that focuses on "A World Without Packaging Waste," and is comprised of input from over 40 team members in different areas of the packaging value chain. It was written for packaging designers with limited knowledge about sustainability to encourage them to make more educated decisions about packaging.
