PTFE is a substance that is highly durable, long lasting and could easily be reused for the same purpose repeatedly. This material can endure various temperatures and environments making it a good packaging material. Using a packaging material that can be reused greatly would reduce the amount of plastics entering our landfills and waterways. This will help to sustain our natural ecosystem for future generations.
