From product manufacturing to disposal, we seek and share ways to eliminate waste

What if our economy operated on the principle that all products and packaging could be regenerated without ever becoming trash?

Product packaging has come under a lot of environmental scrutiny in the last decade. Packaging is in a difficult position – it’s both critical and temporary. No one knows more about this conundrum than Greg Fornasiero, Director of Packaging Engineering at The Home Depot. We’ve asked Greg to talk to Eco Actions about what The Home Depot is doing to improve packaging and make it more sustainable. With three decades of packaging engineering to reflect upon, Greg is also the perfect person to speak to how far we’ve already come.

EA: What exactly does the Director of Packaging Engineering do for The Home Depot?
