This 2-hour virtual workshop is geared to people looking to start or grow their food-based businesses. Well designed ‘sustainable’ packaging that is fit-for-purpose must meet its functional requirements while minimizing negative environmental impacts. The workshop will introduce four design principles for packaging sustainability: effective, efficient, circular and safe, and illustrate them with examples relevant to small, food-based businesses. It will also identify common misconceptions associated with packaging’s environmental impacts.
