First part of an article which focuses on the use of plastics as packaging material. This use has been increasing at an exponential rate with time over the past decades. After use, most of the plastic waste traditionally has been disposed of into landfills which in turn have led to serious environmental concerns. Landfill sites are decreasing. Discusses options such as recycling and reuse of post consumer plastics which may contribute to solving these environmental problems. Also discusses relevant European legislation.
