BOULDER, COLO. — Among the many opportunities to advance sustainability in the pet industry, packaging continues to come up as a top contender. However, there are some barriers that continue to hinder these efforts, including regulatory factors and the presence of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS).

To lower these barriers and provide actionable insights to pet industry companies looking for more eco-friendly packaging, the Pet Sustainability Coalition (PSC) has designed a five-part webinar series to connect them with topic experts.

“With the ever-changing landscape surrounding sustainable packaging, we constantly strive to connect experts in fields such as legislation, recycling and on-pack labeling, and PFAS to the PSC community,” said Ali Boden, senior packaging program manager at PSC. “In my daily interactions with PSC members, inquiries relating to these topics have come up frequently. I’m excited to provide a forum for these questions to be answered by those most knowledgeable in that space.”

Leaders from Dow, GreenBlue, Root, The Recycling Partnership, and Charter Next Generation will provide expert insights throughout the webinar series. The series will include five webinars over the next month, each hosted from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. Mountain Time:

  • Sept. 12: Designing for Recyclability with Dow
  • Sept. 19: Global Packaging Legislation with Root
  • Sept. 26: PFAS in Pet Packaging with Charter Next Generation
  • Oct. 3: Tools to Design for Recyclability with The Recycling Partnership
  • Oct. 10: How2Recycle Labeling with GreenBlue

All webinars will be open to pet industry professionals, with PSC members able to register for free. Registrants will be able to rewatch each webinar on-demand.
