Packaging comes in many forms and for many purposes, including boxes, cartons, bags, food packaging, moulded plastic etc. For these applications, the materials most commonly used are plastic, paper and cardboard. When looking for environmental attributes of products in this range, one option is to look for post-consumer recycled content. For example, some of the suppliers listed on this website sell plastic packaging material that has been manufactured from post-consumer HDPE and PET.
