Food Packaging-Environmental Impact

MSW consists of items commonly thrown away, food wraps, yard trimmings, including packages and durable items such as refrigerators. Legislative and regulatory efforts to control packaging are based on the mistaken perception that packaging of foods and beverages are the largest component of MSW. Food packaging is an exceptional contributor to MSW because food is the only product i.e. typically consumed thrice a day by every individual. Accordingly, food packaging contributes for almost two-thirds of total packaging waste by volume. 

According to a study, Food and Beverage Packaging its Roles, Materials, and Environmental Issues,  provides an overview of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) solid waste management guidelines and other waste management options, addresses disposal methods of and legislation on packaging disposal, and describes cradle-to-cradle concept, which has been replaced to cradle-to-grave emphasis. The sustainability goal of the cradle-to-cradle concept is to recover sufficient materials and energy in such a way that imposes zero impact on future generations. Consequently, IFT has issued a new scientific theory that describes the role of packaging in the food supply chain, and the types of materials used in food packaging, and its impact of food and beverage packaging on the environment.
