The destructive impact plastic pollution is having on the environment is well documented. Plastic accumulating in our oceans and on our beaches has become a global crisis and evidence of the devastating effect of plastic on marine life is mounting. The facts are there: more than 8 million tonnes of plastic enter our oceans every year and only 14% of plastic packaging is collected for recycling globally. It’s clear that urgent action is needed.
It will take time to find the right solutions for the long term but after analysing our plastic footprint and collaborating with suppliers and the recycling industry, we’ve moved in a quick and agile way to make simple but impactful changes.
