EhoPlace’s Erkki Laiho had the presentation in EMPACK2017 exhibition in Helsinki 11.10.2017. The title of this presentation was: 

“Plastics in packaging are in many cases necessary and fulfil sustainability demands”

Population in Asia countries is large but unfortunately their waste management is undeveloped. Lot of waste and chemicals are going to oceans. Plastics are light and create visible “ocean plastic floating” and are dangerous for plankton. Here in Finland this phenomenon is seen among consumers as a “plastic phobia”. This has caused the reducing of plastic packaging without any justifiable reasons. In the presentation it was noticed also that our real problem is food waste. Speaker showed how this waste can be reduced dramatically if right types of oxygen barrier plastic and suitable combinations; for instance paper/board plus plastic are used in food packaging.

It was presented also that we should definitely concentrate on consumer’s education and information. It seems like so called “plastic hate” is utilized in marketing for instance by confusing people with terminology (bio- eco-, carbon footprint, recycling etc.)

The presentation has got a good feedback and EhoPlace uses this presentation in education events with the title:  “Packaging Plastics in Good and in Bad - What every consumer’s should know about plastics”





Easyfairs Finland organizes an international packaging exhibition, EMPACK2017, in Helsinki Exhibition Centre 11-12 October 2017.

Instead of traditional Plasti&Rubber-exhibition in Lahti there will be a trade fair with the name of Muovi&Pakkaus (Plastic&Packaging) 20.-21.4 2017. This change is very welcome due to the fact that almost 40% of all plastics in Europe are used for packaging.

Bio- and circular economy as well as other environmental items related to plastics will be presented in the exhibition and also in separately organized seminars.

EhoPlace’s Erkki Laiho will give a presentation on Friday 21.4. at 12:00.  

The title of the presentation is: “Plastic packaging - consumers’ harm or necessary alternative”.

Warmly welcome!
