Plastics Recycling 2014: The next steps for the industry

Independent of consumer participation in recycling, the race is on for companies to green their supply chains and improve the sustainability of product lines. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the plastics packaging sector, where manufacturers, shippers and retailers are discovering that sustainable packaging policies are good for both the environment, as well as the bottom line.

The 2014 Plastics Recycling Conference opens with a top-level assessment of plastics recycling and packaging sustainability initiatives at some of the largest retailers and packaging manufacturers in the world -- Walmart's director of sustainability, Rob Kaplan, Steve Sikra, Procter & Gamble's section head for packaging applications and Charlie Schwarze, global sustainability manager at Amcor Rigid Plastics.

Don't miss Plastics Recycling 2014, to be held March 11-12, 2014, at Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando, Florida. For more information, visit www.plasticsrecycling.com.
