Such a truly fascinating first day with FEFCO in Brussels learning all about corrugated cardboard, circularity and sustainability in the packaging industry. Apparently the biggest contribution we can all make (beyond reducing our consumption and reusing where possible) is to ensure we cleanly recycle all our paper and card: take the time to rip off the plastic bit of the envelopes and make sure there arenโ€™t any staples. Itโ€™s amazing to see what manufacturers like VPK who we visited yโ€™day afternoon are doing to create a zero waste processing plant fuelled mainly by their own sustainable energies. It was also so interesting to hear how societal changes, demographics and trends are all putting pressure on the packaging industry. Brilliant to see corrugated cardboard products at every level through the day: from waste paper bins, to ID card holders, to chairs and artworks! See my Stories for more pics and info. Today we are heading the @europeanparliament to talk with an MEP about sustainability policies, followed by a visit to a leading packaging design company to learn about design and future technologies. Lovely dinner last night here in this cool Modern Rustic style space at @strofiliabrussels ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ’š#circularbynature #fid2019 #fefco #vpkpackaginggroup #environmentallyconscious #sustainability #packagingdesign #packaging #packagingideas #corrugatedcardboard #brussels #belgium #saveourplanet #eco #agreenerlife #recycle #reuse #rusticdecor #wheretoeat #momentsofmine ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ’š
