New Podcast: Packaging’s Role in Reaching Sustainability Goals

Our latest episode of the PrimeTime with S-OneLP podcast features Ralph Giammarco, S-OneLP vice president, who discusses where the industry stands with creating viable, full solutions for recyclable and compostable packaging materials for converters to offer to their brands.

As S-OneLP continues to add to its Sustainable ByDesign™ product line, Giammarco explains that the concept is to focus on the brand’s desires for recyclable or compostable packaging, as they see fit. Then, working with the converter, S-OneLP helps to custom design that particular pouch. Brands that make higher-end, artisan products, like coffee, tea, and cannabis, are all early to the game.

“We’re not simply pushing one type of solution,” he says. “We’re designing the best packaging for the converter to be able to give their brand customers what they’re looking for.”

Giammarco also discusses the importance of more education and definitions of terms, which manufacturers, marketers, and the industry as a whole are currently developing.
