Government and industry are continuing to work together to establish guidelines for more environmental packaging, and to look at measures to better handle the waste caused by the way products are packaged.
As a consumer, you can help make a difference by choosing products which use minimal or re-usable packaging.
Besides beverage containers, a variety of materials can be recovered from other household items.
Maybe your local recycling centre is already accepting newspaper, tins, or glass jars. Why not check it out!
As we work to create a more environmental approach to packaging, the whole system will also become more convenient, and economical.
