Design smart material guides

The Australian Packaging Covenant has published a set of resources to assist those involved in the design, specification and procurement of packaging. The Design Smart Material Guides were written by consultants Sustainable Resource Use (SRU) and Helen Lewis Research.

The ten guides provide a ‘checklist’ of sustainability considerations to keep in mind when designing and/or specifying packaging based on particular materials. They cover fibre packaging, rigid plastic packaging, flexible plastic packaging, aluminium containers, steel containers, glass containers, composite packaging formats, degradable plastics packaging and packaging components/closures/labels.

The guides can be downloaded here.
