CLEVELAND, July 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Reducing use of virgin plastics is a key goal of packaging sustainability efforts, and leading US packaging suppliers including Amcor and Berry Global are showing dedication to these trends by participating in the Ellen MacArthur Foundation New Plastics Economy Global Commitment and similar pledges.

While some companies are exploring ways to fulfill such pledges by making plastic more eco-friendly – such as by improving recyclability or increasing use of recycled content – others are looking to shift away from conventional plastics altogether, changes that benefit materials that are perceived as more sustainable, including paper, bioplastics, and molded fiber.

Pope Francis’ trip to Canada to apologize for the horrors of church-run Indigenous residential schools marks a radical rethink of the Catholic Church’s missionary legacy in the Americas. Francis has said his weeklong visit, which begins Sunday, is a “penitential pilgrimage” to beg forgiveness on Canadian soil for the “evil” done to Native peoples by Catholic missionaries. His tone of repentance signals a marked shift for the papacy, which has long acknowledged abuses occurred in the residential schools and strongly asserted the rights and dignity of Indigenous peoples. But past popes have also, in the same breath, hailed the sacrifice and holiness of the European Catholic missionaries who brought Christianity to the Americas.

LOS ANGELES — There was an eruption from the crowd. Air horns over the PA system. And, in a dramatic scene in the bottom of the eighth inning at Dodger Stadium on Friday night, a cathartic relief from one of the Los Angeles Dodgers’ most struggling hitters.

Shaunae Miller-Uibo of the Bahamas captured the 400-meter title at the world championships. It was the one 400 title missing from her resume after winning two Olympic gold medals. Miller-Uibo wants to switch over and focus exclusively on the 200. It won't be easy. She's stepping down in distance into an event where Shericka Jackson of Jamaica just ran the second-fastest time ever on her way to gold. A conversation for later. Miller-Uibo will root on her husband, Estonian decathlete Maicel Uibo. At the 2019 world championships in Doha, husband and wife both won silver medals. Another matching set would make these worlds perfect.

Iran's state television says flash floods in the drought-stricken southern province of Fars have killed at least 17 people. The governor of the city of Estahban was reported as saying Saturday that heavy rains had swollen a local river. The official said six people were still missing. Iran’s metrology department had warned about possibly heavy seasonal rainfall across the country that is facing a decades-long drought blamed on climate change. The dangers of flash flooding has also been exacerbated by disregarding safety measures like the construction of buildings and roads near river beds.

SEATTLE — The stage was set Friday for one of the most fun nights in recent Mariner history.

The Houston Astros ended the Seattle Mariners’ winning streak at 14 games, with Jose Altuve and Yordan Alvarez homering in a 5-2 victory.
