Some problems can only be solved using entirely new strategies. With our members, we explore alternative ways to approach the package/product system. This includes deploying reusable packaging and how businesses can create new models to deliver products and engage customers. We also encourage companies to explore opportunities for bio-based and compostable materials to be successfully incorporated into packaging.
