Plastic is one of the hardest types of packaging to recycle. If these bills are passed, the cost of recycling plastic packaging solutions will be much higher in comparison to paper-based materials. In the short run this cost will initially only fall on the producers, but in the long run the added cost will trickle down to the sellers and the buyers.
Paper based packaging solution, such as the In The Box design, are much simpler to recycle. This will help to keep costs low for both sellers and buyers. Paper based packaging solution will not only help the environment, but it will also help to increase the level of profitability for many companies!
