AMERIPEN IS A RESOURCE FOR NEWS AND INFORMATION ABOUT PACKAGING AND THE ENVIRONMENT
Packaging sustainability is an important topic that continues to garner attention from consumers, media, legislators and industry, alike. From packaging producer responsibility legislation, to the continued development of sustainable packaging, to packaging labeling and safety, there is a lot happening around this complex topic—and no doubt your audience is interested.
AMERIPEN promotes fact- and science-based decision making to secure a future where packaging production, distribution, and consumption become even more sustainable. AMERIPEN has a unique track record of working with all stakeholders to form and implement policies where industry, environmentalists, recyclers, packaging end-users, and legislators are collaborating to reach workable and effective solutions.
