WRAP published their Blueprint for a Sustainable Planet. Their goal is for 70% of plastic to be recycled and 70% of bioplastic to be composted by 2025!
This is indeed an ambitious target here in the UK but it is one we welcome. It couldn't come soon enough.
We have been campaigning for nearly 2 years for DEFRA to increase the targets for plastic recycling and composting and this certainly goes a long way to achieving this.
There is still room for improvement though - 70% isn't 100%, is it? And we still feel strongly that legislation needs to reflect these idealistic targets with penalties and fines in order to drive forward the investment and action plans for all councils.
Please join us in signing our petition and ensuring these 'targets' become a reality.
We can't abide greenwashing and lip service to social and environmental responsibility. So we decided to put ourselves through the rigorous assessment process to achieve B CorpTM accreditation. And WE DID IT! Joining some of the worlds most pioneering, environmentally conscious brands.
Anyone can call their product 'eco' - clever branding and careful choice of words is often all that is needed. And, sometimes the smallest % of cotton is enough to make you think you are making a really good environmentally friendly choice. We think all parents should know what is in the nappies their baby is wearing. Here's what to know.
