INCPEN publishes guide on internet packaging
The way we buy things is changing. Many of us now shop online for a wide range of goods, which are delivered either direct to our homes or to convenient pick-up points. But this presents challenges.
To coincide with Climate Week 2012, INCPEN (the Industry Council for Packaging and the Environment) is publishing a guide - Packaging and the Internet: A guide to packaging goods for multi-channel delivery systems - to provide advice on designing packaging that will make these new delivery systems as resource-efficient as possible.
It has been developed with local authority Trading Standards Officers to give guidance to manufacturers and retailers on choosing appropriate packaging (Press Release INCPEN, 8 March 2012).
