Plastics have been a target of many environmental groups since they are non degradable and cause damage to atmosphere, plants and animal and marine life. Amidst such criticisms in the past, the flexible packaging companies have come up with plastics which are sustainable in nature. What is sustainable packaging? Simply put it means eco friendly measures of manufacturing packaging components thereby helping the companies reduce their carbon footprint and waste.

The Indian Flexible packaging industry is a growingmarketwith an estimated value of $900 million according to the IBEF. Plastics dominate the flexible packaging industry in India, where 40-50% of total plastic produced is used in packaging industry.
