Hello. My name is Nate Miranda. I have worked in the packaging industry for almost 30 years. I worked 20 years at Cryovac (a division of Sealed Air) designing new flexible packaging, 3 years at PepsiCo working on new beverage packaging, and 4 years at MonoSol providing technical service for water soluble packaging. I am now working for TC Transcontinental, helping TC meet their Ellen McArthur Foundation pledges. TC pledges to have all of their plastics packaging to be re-usable, recycle ready, or compostable by 2025. TC also pledges to incorporate 10% post consumer recycled materials into their plastics packaging by 2025. I am at a stage in my career where “legacy” is important. If I can help TC meet their Ellen McArthur pledges, then I will be happy with my legacy.
Why do you want to serve on the SPC Executive Committee?
I want to help companies meet their sustainable packaging goals. I can do this by serving on the SPC Executive Committee and by drawing from my varied experiences in flexible packaging, rigid packaging, and water soluble/compostable packaging.
