Want to prevent plastics from entering our ocean? A major source of pollution is packaging. A key challenge is multi-laminate packaging, as it is very difficult to recycle. To tackle this issue, Searious Business is developing a recyclable drink pouch, currently being tested in different production facilities. Also, to drive more systemic change, Searious Business has set up a consortium together with Brightlands Material Center & TNO, called RePETitive Packaging. The main goal of this consortium is to make all plastic food packaging recyclable, in line with the EU Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy.
