Replacing 1 billion pieces (and counting) of plastic with sustainable packaging solutions

Replacing 1 billion pieces (and counting) of plastic with sustainable packaging solutions

In partnership with some of the world’s most iconic FMCG brands, DS Smith has been leading the plastic replacement fight. Since 2020, the company has replaced over 1 billion everyday plastic items from supermarket shelves, including fruit and vegetable punnets, plastic carriers, and shrink wrap found on soft drink bottles.

25% of consumers are actively against plastic and 41% want packaging made from alternative renewable sources.  As consumer demand for plastic replacement continues to grow, DS Smith is 100% dedicated to helping its customers find innovative solutions.

DS Smith can help to solve the challenges and find solutions for ‘single-use’ and ‘hard-to-recycle’ packaging. 80% of any product’s environmental impact is determined by its design so the company has trained around 800 designers on the principles of circular design.

DS Smith has already created over 1,000 designs for millions of products geared towards reducing the use of problem plastics. Replacing one billion pieces of plastic is just the beginning – not the end goal. the company’s vision extends beyond sustainable packaging to innovative and interactive packaging, enhanced with cutting-edge technologies.
