5. to Reuse 4 Transitions
6. Design ① Disposability Durability
7. “With durable [containers], you also get a lot more benefits. The packaging is more beautiful. It has more functions. It does more than a normal package does.” - Tom Szaky, TerraCycle founder and CEO
8. The overall 2017 plastic bottle recycling rate was 29.3% — a slight decrease from 29.7% in 2016. “…lightweighting…causes more bottles to end up in the post-consumer paper stream, as they don't have the heft for machinery to properly handle them during the sortation process.” Source: National Postconsumer Plastic Bottle Recycling Report from the Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR) and the American Chemistry Council (ACC).

9. Model ② Linear Consumption Circular Restorative
10. Adapted from Ellen MacArthur Foundation; Philips
11. “…most executives say that it’s about reducing waste or making sure that products are recycled, missing the full picture of benefits – if products and materials stay in use longer, that also means less resource extraction and less risk in supply chains, and cutting climate pollution.”
12. System ③ Lowest Cost Value Creation
13. Technology ④ Manual Automated
14. 21 Technology Is The Enabler for Reuse
15. Why Reusable Packaging Systems? ❑ World needs better the best sustainable material management practices ❑ Businesses will survive and thrive with material reuse in the circular economy
