A reason to call the APC Packaging Line?

A recent article in the Sydney Morning Herald highlighted some of the perils of modern packaging. Vacuum-sealed jars and "clamshell" wrapping can cause frustration as you try to break in to that new product. Not to mention cases of over-packaging.

The Australian Packaging Covenant (APC) set up the APC Packaging Line to handle complaints and provide advice about consumer packaging. Breaking into tamper-proof packaging for medicine and the plastic wrapped around cucumbers were the two biggest complaints to the hotline so far.

If you have any enquiries or complaints about the consumer packaging of APC signatories, contact the APC Packaging Line on 1300 308 030 or email

The APC is a proud supporter of Planet Ark's National Recycling Week.
