PackTheFuture High number of entries in EcoDesign category underlines increasing consideration of the circular economy THE 4th edition of ‘PackTheFuture – The Sustainable Plastic Packaging Award’, managed by ELIPSO & IK, the trade organisations representing plastic and flexible packaging in France and Germany, awarded 13 winners out of 48 entries. The versatile innovations reflect the growing importance of sustainable packaging for the plastic packaging sector in Europe. The high number

of entries in the Eco Design category underlines the increasing consideration of the circular economy by the industry. Established in 2014, the PackTheFuture Award is based on an initiative of ELIPSO – The French Plastic and Flexible Packaging Association and IK Industrievereinigung Kunststoffverpackungen e.V. – The German Plastics Packaging Association. The packaging award

focuses on promoting the innovative and creative potential of all kinds of plastic packaging. It offers an ideal opportunity for ELIPSO and IK members to advertise the sustainability of their own plastic packaging products. The World Packaging Organisation (WPO) has recognised the PackTheFuture Award as a qualifying contest for the WorldStar Awards: the largest packaging competition worldwide.
