The Environmental Research & Education Foundation (EREF) has announced a new sustainability-driven project, partnered with Ameripen (the American Institute for Packaging and the Environment) and Michigan State University, which will focus on the consumer relationship between packaging and food waste.
According to a release, the objective of this research will be to collect data and gain an understanding of the relationship between packaging and household food waste. The project will explore how consumers use packaging in the home before and after food waste measurement. It will also analyze the research findings and identify where more information is needed to recommend potential solutions to leverage the value of packaging to decrease household consumer food waste.
