Packages and closures for packaging

Is there any future for a Plastic Packaging?

As early as on the 1st December, during the conference organized by the Polish Association of Cosmetic and Detergent Industry “Good packaging – choice or requirement? – how the green revolution fosters product innovations”, our Marketing Manager – Małgorzata Chomiuk, will discuss whether the cosmetic industry may resign from plastic.

Should we, in the era in which we realize that the extraction of fossil fuels needs to be limited, and other plastics are at our fingertips, keep using plastic?
What do statistics and scientific studies say about the use of aluminum for cosmetic and food products?
Why hasn't glass taken over all drugstore shelves, if it can be recycled infinitely numerous times, and when discarded into the environment maybe it won't decorate it, but it won't pollute it with toxic substances either?

Over the last 11 years, paper has become more popular by approx. 20% when it comes to its use in the packaging industry, so can we replace all our everyday packaging with it?
How will an increased use of that raw material affect nature? Paper is one of the most recycled types of waste, so maybe it should replace plastic?

Corn, hemp or sugar cane are becoming extremely popular crops all around the world!
What’s the source of that popularity? Has their consumption increased, or may a new industry has appeared which generates the demand for those plants? When are the limits in sustainable crops crossed and is the sphere of monocrops, lack of biodiversity is entered into, and when is the hydrological balance of a given region in danger? How intensive actions need to be taken in one area, to allow pesticides to affect the groundwater?
And what does bioplastic, which is perceived by most of us as the savior of humankind from plastic based on fossil fuels, have to do with all of that...
Why does another savior – recycling, fail us?
Who and why has promised humankind that everything will have a second life... And why has the life of most of the plastic waste we produce already lasted almost a hundred years, and will last several hundred years more....

How to deal with all of it now, so that our children and grandchildren can sit in the shadow of the trees which we’ll plant for them today, rather than perish in a heap of rubbish that we’ll leave behind us?
