Got new ideas for reducing plastic waste? SPI is listening.
Zero waste has become the mantra of more companies and municipalities as landfill space is running out and consumers are becoming more aware of the impact wastes such as plastic have on the environment. And speaking of plastics, one of the industry’s oldest and largest trade associations, the Plastics Industry Trade Association (SPI), is starting to nudge its members to consider launching zero-waste programs.
To that end, SPI tweaked its mission statement and now claims that zero waste is integral to the long-term success of the plastics industry.
