What makes 100% recyclability important to the Circular Economy?   

  • Recycling is vital to transition to the Circular Economy and everyone can help – from packaging producers and brand owners to consumers.
  • The first principle of the Circular Economy is to eliminate waste and pollution – recycling makes used packaging into a resource.
