Current patterns of consumption and production are unsustainable and contribute to environmental degradation, resource depletion, and climate change. The packaging wastes that are produced by large corporations are frequently found in landfills and bodies of water due to poor waste management practices and the irresponsible throwing of wastes by consumers.
These practices result in large amounts of waste, pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions, which can have significant impact on human health and the environment.
It is essential to promote resource efficiency through proper waste retrieval programs that will help reduce waste and pollution, and ultimately, shift towards a circular economy that supports sustainable production and consumption patterns. This requires the adoption of new policies, regulations, and business models that support sustainable consumption and production, and the engagement of all stakeholders, including governments, businesses, consumers, and other groups involved.
