Global food processing and packaging solutions company Tetra Pak has expressed its support for the European Commission’s plastics strategy that was announced on Tuesday as part of the EU Action Plan for a Circular Economy. The plan followed China’s recent ban on imports of foreign recyclable material, which caused havoc in European countries that used to rely on the country to phase out their plastic waste and led to waste piling up in ports.
Global flexible and rigid packaging producer Amcor Rigid Plastics is to present its new PET packaging portfolio at the Unified Wine & Grape Symposium in the US at the end of the month. At the event, which will take place between 23 and 25 January in California, Amcor will launch its new lightweight PET bottles that wine company Naked Winery is already using for its Outdoor Vino brand.
French mineral water brand Evian has revealed its strategy to tackle plastic packaging waste including committing to adopt “a continuous loop for recycling at large scale, transforming all types of PET plastic waste into the high-quality plastic” by 2025. The brand said that it will aim to source all of its plastic bottles from 100% recycled plastic and adopt a circular approach “where plastic is kept within the economy and out of nature”.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
