Constantia Flexibles Commits To Fight Pollution Flexible packaging producer Constantia Flexibles has signed the Global Commitment to eliminate plas- tic pollution.The New Plastics Economy Global Com- mitment is led by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation in collaboration with UN Environment. It was officially unveiled at the foundation’s Ocean Conference held October 29 in Bali and signed by 250 organizations. Researchers estimate that more than 8.3 billion tons of plastic have been produced since the early 1950s.About 60 percent of that plastic has ended up in either a landfill or the natural environment. If cur- rent trends continue, there could be more plastic than fish in the ocean by 2050, according to Ellen MacArthur Foundation. One of the most important targets of the Global Commitment vision is transitioning from linear to cir- cular packaging models. Participating companies and organizations have made the commitment to focus on developing packaging innovations that ensure easy and safe reuse, recycling, or composting. There- fore, Constantia Flexibles recently pledged that 100 percent of its packaging will be recyclable by 2025. TLMI Launches PET Release Liner Recycling Program TLMI has launched a PET release liner recycling program in close conjunction with Lincoln, Califor- nia-based Circular Polymers.
