The Evolution of Plastic-Based Packaging in the FMCG Industry and its Environmental Impact
Dr Abhishek Singh
This research explores the evolution of plastic-based packaging, including trays, jars, flow wrap, bread polybags, and laminates, within the Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) industry and its environmental impact. Plastic packaging has revolutionized product distribution and convenience, yet it has also emerged as a major environmental concern due to its non-biodegradable nature and contribution to plastic pollution. The study delves into the historical progression of plastic packaging and its implications for the environment. It emphasizes the pressing need for sustainable alternatives and a circular economy approach to mitigate the adverse effects. The findings underscore the urgency of rethinking the future of plastic packaging in the FMCG sector to minimize its environmental footprint.
