DuPont Packaging & Industrial Polymers will host a global online Packaging Exchange focused on addressing sustainable packaging issues and package design considerations to improve sustainability and reduce waste.

Featured speakers will be Bob Lilienfeld, whose “Use Less Stuff” segments are featured on FOX News (see Green Thoughts on sustainable packaging: Physics or psychology? posted May 11, 2011 at Food & Beverage Packaging). He will speak on the sustainable packaging paradox - closing the gap between quantum science and consumer psychology. Peter Clarke, founder and CEO of Product Ventures, will speak on the future of package design and challenges to incorporate innovation, sustainability and cost/waste reduction.

The DuPont Packaging Exchange takes place June 13, 2011, from 10 to 11 a.m. EDT, as a web event and is free with registration.  At the event, winners of the 23rd DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation will be announced.

Downloadable information and links to useful tools on sustainable packaging will be available on-demand throughout the DuPont Packaging Exchange.  Insights from the Packaging Awards winners and jurors as to the nature of these breakthrough innovations will also be available.
