But concerns about the health and safety of reusable packaging have temporarily halted the packaging industry's progress toward a sustainable, circular supply chain. Specific areas of the packaging industry that have been affected include: the rise of digital printing, consumer preferences, e-commerce, new or growing consumer health and safety concerns, redefined sustainability, and the rise of single plastics use and lifting of prohibitions.
