Sustainability, Inclusivity, and The People of Packaging
If the relentless bad news is getting to you, I can highly recommend taking the time to listen to this Podcasts from the Printerverse episode with Adam Peek of Fortis Solutions Group, to hear from someone who really cares about a better future and is actively working for positive change.
It’s not all sunshine and rainbows though, as Adam provides some insight into the frustrating problems with packaging recycling and the need for better access to education on how consumers can act sustainably. His "four buckets" analogy is a really useful breakdown of how sustainability in packaging works.
In this episode, we also address the need for more representation of women and minorities in the packaging space, an issue that led Adam and a colleague to create the People of Packaging podcast, focusing on the stories of people in the industry rather than technical content, and ensuring those voices that are less represented are heard.
Listen Long and Prosper!
