Sustainable cosmetic packaging solutions

Plastics play a vital role in our everyday lives, but plastic waste is simply unacceptable. One of the ways we’re addressing the world’s plastic waste problem is by offering more sustainable copolyesters. For every one million cosmetic jars made with Cristal Renew 50, Eastman will use 45.7 tons of plastic waste as a raw material, avoiding 17.7 tons of greenhouse gas emissions.
