This problem of waste is multiplying as the companies don’t take responsibility for the disposal of the packaging material after it has been used. Usually packaging is designed for dump and it ends up there due to its inability to be re-used or re-cycled into new products. Packaging materials re-usability and re-cycling will help reduce waste or litter and it will, in turn, help to reduce environmental pollution. Financial incentives, like container deposits, can be effective at reducing litter and recycling beverage containers.
Companies can be asked to apply source reduction at the time of design and production phases by minimizing the material used in packaging. They may be encouraged to use natural resources to deliver products as efficiently as possible. Food service companies and hospitality establishments can adopt source reduction by minimizing the use of single-disposable containers, using reusable cutlery and reusable take out containers, helping making the world to minimize its pollution problems.
