“Pandemic panic” has caused nearly 70 percent of people to turn to single-use plastic more, according to at least one survey. Yet 86 percent of Americans agree we need to transition from an economy that throws things away to one that emphasizes reuse and recycling, according to recent research from WWF. Finally, 90 percent of consumers believe companies should use packaging that can be easily reused or recycled, according to a Ball Corp study.
That’s just the start of all the conflicting data out there. So, what’s the solution to this mounting single-waste plastics crisis?
Here’s part of the answer: From startups to multinational corporations, the business community has the expertise and influence to solve the plastic waste problem once and for all.
