The current production for plastic is currently estimated to more than 400 million tonnes per year. Worse, its growth is exponential. Half of all the plastic ever produced was produced in the last 13 years. And by 2050, we will have 4 times more plastic waste than we ever have produced to this day.
The packaging industry is the largest producer of plastic with about 40% of the total plastic production and it is also the largest contributor to primary plastic waste with single-use containers.

Nutradian labeled products do not use plastic packaging.
