    Is the definition of sustainability morphing due to Covid-19? How is the conversation surrounding raw materials, end of life options and LCA changing in the nonwovens industry as consumers reinvent their buying habits to maintain their health and safety? Can safety and health ever be in harmony? Can our high level, often abstract ideals cross over with the reality of the products we choose to buy and use?

     

    The Covid-19 pandemic has upended nearly every aspect of daily life and the supply chain. As the world resumes and adapts to a new normal what will this mean for plastics, recycling and other initiatives in a new environment of health priorities, and budget concerns.
