Over the Counter 9 June 2022: Reusable Packaging For Consumer Health Goods With Annika Greve
In this episode, HBW Insight speaks to Annika Greve from Loop and Terracycle about the work that they do reducing waste across industries. Loop works with companies like Bausch+Lomb to create packaging that can be bought, used, and then dropped off in big box stores where consumers regularly shop. The discussion ranges from how greenwashing from companies can harm consumer trust in the industry, to how relatively recent habits of disposability will ultimately drive how companies switch to sustainable practices.
