In the EU, tethered closures will soon be mandatory for most single-use plastic containers. We expect other regions around the world to adopt similar legislation in the near future.

How do you seize on that opportunity? What’s involved?

Our PETinar had the answers.

Participants learned:

  • Why switch to tethered closures: the basic requirements and opportunities
  • Best practices in tethered closure design
  • What’s involved and how to get started
  • We will also share a gallery of real-world tethered closure designs for inspiration.
