Manufacturers should be obliged to contribute to recycling and reutilizing the packaging of their products: this is an opinion shared across the globe by four out of five adults. And as many as 71% go so far as to assert that single use plastic should be banned altogether as soon as possible, a move that will soon go into effect in Canada and the European Union. Recent IPSOS research highlights these and other findings in: A Throwaway World. The Challenge of Plastic Packaging and Waste. This study surveyed over 19,000 adults representing 29 countries on five continents.
