Visit the INCPEN, the Industry Council for Packaging and the Environment website for further information. INCPEN is a research organisation, which draws together an influential group of companies who share a vision of the future where all production, distribution, and consumption are sustainable. It aims to: ensure that policy on packaging makes a positive contribution to sustainability; encourage industry to minimise the environmental impact of packaging and packaged goods and continuously improve packaging; and explain the role of packaging in society.

USING LESS PACKAGING-WHO BENEFITS? You: The first noticeable effect of buying less packaging is that you will almost certainly save money. You will also spend less time battling with shrink-wrapped foil-coated wrappers, and there will be much less rubbish to put out each week.

Other people: Reduced packaging means cleaner streets and fewer smelly health hazards. It also means fewer disappointments for your children when the product inside the glossy wrapping looks nothing like the picture on the outside. The environment: Less packaging requires fewer resources, and leads to less pollution around mines and factories.

Reducing the paper used in packaging by 50 per cent would save 60 million trees every year. Less packaging also means that less land is needed for dumping our 'waste'. SEPARATING RUBBISH - THE FACTS: More than three-quarters of the domestic rubbish we throw out could be recycled but less than 15 per cent actually is. During the 1939-45 war many people separated out metal, glass, paper and organic material in order to help the nation's economy. Today, householders in Germany, Denmark and Sweden are increasingly recognising that the separation and recycling of rubbish makes very good economic and ecological sense.
