This is a fascinating article that really speaks to the change in the landscape for the packaging industry.  As a company that manages the packaging operations of many nationwide food manufacturers, I see this as a real game changer.  The biggest concern that is drawn from this new change to biodegradable options is the expense incurred in doing so.  There needs to be urgency on the manufacturers and from the customers to make the switch and understand that there will be an added cost for these new materials, but ultimately the question remains, “Can you place a price on saving our environment and making this world a healthier place for future generations?”  We here at Forefront Packaging believe that this is a great step in the right direction and I look forward to seeing what the packaging industry will come up with next.
