Sustainability in Healthcare Packaging: A Grassroots Effort


Published on September 22, 2021

Last month during MDM West, I had the pleasure of sharing the stage with Kiley Djupstrom (Plastic Ingenuity) and Jennifer Benolken (DuPont) in a moderated session on sustainability in medical packaging. Kiley and I lead a team of industry professionals as part of the Kilmer Innovations in Packaging group focused on sustainability. Our goal: Make progress in sustainability of healthcare packaging. This is no easy feat, but the goal is progress, and we have a team of passionate individuals across the value chain who are committed to showing up and doing the work. 

This article shares insights we’ve gained and challenges we’ve faced on our journey to make healthcare packaging more sustainable.
