Anyone committed to environmental "sustainability" strives to meet the needs of the present generation without diminishing the ability of future generations to meet their needs. In the packaging industry, the increased interest in sustainability led to the formation of the Sustainable Packaging Coalition, a working group that developed a list of key attributes of environmentally friendly packaging. These include packaging designs that make optimal use of both materials and energy.
