This perspective is a fallacy; both initiatives are important. Moreover, consumers are increasingly environmentally conscious and interested in recycling. Progress in recycling efforts has reduced the environmental impact of food packaging. Brands, recyclers, the packaging industry, and consumer education are fueling the circular economy to enable more recycling.
