The production, distribution and disposal of packaging materials consumes vast amounts of energy. These costs are quantified and ways in which they can be reduced are described. Recycling of materials is seen as offering distinct environmental advantages in terms of energy saving as part of an overall strategy, together with the use of more efficient forms of transport. The development of other forms of energy to replace environmentally harmful fossil fuels is seen as necessary.
