The “Global Plastic Packaging” metric refers to the total amount or weight of plastic materials that are used for packaging purposes globally within a specific timeframe (usually annually). This includes all types of plastic packaging like bottles, containers, wrapping films, bags, and more. This metric is crucial for understanding our consumption patterns and their impact on the environment. Plastic packaging contributes significantly to the total plastic waste generated, and much of it ends up in landfills or the natural environment due to inadequate waste management systems or lack of recycling facilities.
