What are mono-materials?
Why are mono-materials a hot topic for the packaging industry?
Mono-materials are particularly crucial for the packaging industry because anything that can’t be recycled is going to landfill. Because packaging is so plentiful, any reduction in landfill or increase in packaging that can be recycled is hugely beneficial to the environment.
Packaging that uses lots of different materials has been the norm, but increasingly, brands are looking to switch to mono-materials. They hope that this will make their packaging more eco-friendly, sustainable and easily recyclable, supporting a circular economy.
