Growing Population, Growing Responsibility: The Role of Printing and Packaging in a Sustainability
World Population Day, celebrated on July 11, reminds businesses, including printing and packaging owners, about the impact of a growing population on resources. While a larger population increases the demand for printed materials like books, labels, and other printed materials, it also leads to a greater need for packaging. This creates opportunities for packaging companies to develop sustainable solutions.
It is important and our responsibility to adopt sustainable practices. By using eco-friendly materials and exploring sustainable packaging options, the printing and packaging industry can contribute to a greener future while benefiting from the economic advantages of a growing population.
