The article is the last in this series on environmental responsibility and will focus on a specific area in which those in the converting and packaging industries can truly be environmentally responsible in a very positive way, conservation of resources. Conservation is a term with different meanings for different people. In the forest products industry; for example, it might mean reducing the use of trees. In the packaging and converting industries, an important aspect of conservation is reducing the amount of materials that go into packaging.
