Bioplastics are shaping our economy as they increase in use and feasibility. Green Dot Bioplastics’ Kevin Ireland explains why there is still vast room for growth.
Bioplastics will be a major component in the New Plastic Economy. For plastics to thrive without harmful waste and negative environmental impact, a switch from a linear economy to circular economy is paramount.
The Ellen MacArthur Foundation released a comprehensive report in 2017 aimed at rethinking plastics role in our future, and new research earlier this year aimed at providing tangible actions for stimulating change.
Through a switch in fundamental practices and goals, the plastics industry can have a prominent role in reshaping the manufacturing and use of goods throughout the world.
