Why Switch to Molded Paper Pulp Packaging from plastics?
According to the recent study and statistics by Environmental Protection Agency or EPA, plastics generation was increased to 35.7 million tons in the United States, which was 12.2 percent of MSW generation in 2018. This category includes bags, sacks, and wraps; another packaging; polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles and jars; high-density polyethylene (HDPE) natural bottles; and other containers. Manufacturers also use plastic in durable goods, such as appliances, furniture, casings of lead-acid batteries, and other products. EPA does not include plastics in transportation products, other than lead-acid batteries, in this analysis.
Switch to Molded Paper Pulp Packaging
Molded paper pulp packaging, also known as molded fiber, actually started in 1930. The introduction of plastic packaging in the 1970s declined its usage. But with what plastic consumption has brought us, manufacturers are now switching to the improved molding technologies for a more sustainable living.
