Plastic packaging as a component of circular economy
AbstractThe three basic pillars of circular economy in the field of plastic packaging are implementation of the product life cycle assessment, limiting the waste getting into the environment, educating the public and building appropriate consumer attitudes, both at the stage of conscious purchases and handling of used packaging products. This requires the involvement of both producers and consumers. There are products such as plastic disposable bags, which must or should not be used. But there are products that should be recovered from the market. An example here is the task assigned bythe European Union in the form of 90% collection of plastic bottles. The aim of the article is to present the importance of plastics in the implementation of circular economy guidelines.
