We’ve got some new signs up at the office this week. Why? Because we’re supporting the 15th year of Recycle Week.
A huge part of that includes recycling and it’s never been more important. 2018 was the year that the nation realised that recycling can help us solve some of our biggest environmental problems – pollution, climate change and ocean plastics to name just a few.
More than most, we are aware that plastic is a problem and we are tackling the issue head on. In the last 15 years, we have invested significantly in light-weighting our bottles, reducing the weight of our packaging by 30% whilst ensuring that our bottles are 100% recyclable.
The Future of Plastic
Like you, we want to see any negative environmental impact from single use plastic become a thing of the past. Which is why we’ve co-funded an independent initiative convened by The University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership, which aims to develop an ambitious vision and roadmap to eliminate plastic packaging waste from drinks containers in the UK.
How to do your bit
Most people are trying their best to recycle plastic – but the many different ways in which recycling is collected by different councils can be confusing. Recycle Now have created a handy Recycling Locator to help you find out exactly what you can recycle from your home.
Thank YOU for helping us make a difference.
