With too many assumptions in the market, we are giving a chance to the general public to ask their favorite brands, retailers, packaging industry and waste management facilities any question they might have about packaging. We do realize that it sometimes hard to post a correct question and address it to the correct supply chain party, we have prepared a set of materials where everyone can educate themselves on packaging topics. Our founder, Mitja Brgant, wrote the book Breaking The Packaging, and it is the cornerstone of our operations.

Packaging is an important part of our lives and it has been so for thousands of years. With the rapid development of our civilization, we have come to a point where it is inevitable to use more and more packaging.

Consumer-based lifestyle pushed Earth’s resources over the edge of sustainability. Our progress is leaving a large dent in our Planet’s eco-system. We may live in an illusion of prosperous life, but effects of our actions are being seen everywhere around us. Oceans are being suffocated, water supply is becoming a tradeable luxury, animal species are losing their habitats.
One of key problematic not being addressed as it should be is packaging usage. Packaging is one of the publicly most underrated topics. When people are being asked about what packaging is, 80% shoots out “Box.
There is far more to packaging. The importance of it is as crucial for mankind’s existence as it has been for all of mankind’s history, and it just might be that one of the key solutions for widely used term sustainable should start with packaging knowledge.
The key problem we have with regards to packaging is that we as consumers have zero to none influence on packaging used and how it is managed. Initial reason is that we have no real packaging knowledge and that is why we cannot address and challenge Brands, Retailers, Waste Management providers with direct questions. ENP is changing that for good. We are revolutionizing the way packaging is addressed and we are challenging large systems in our society to address it correctly and clearly.
