With single-use now officially included in the Collins Dictionary as their word of 2018, it’s time for us all to reflect about our reliance on plastic, especially in the commercial setting. Looking to next year, is saving costs as well as saving the planet on your agenda for 2019? We show you how to reduce your costs and single-use plastic consumption by 40% in your despatch and logistics operation.
Single-Use – time to reduce
We are now producing nearly 300 million tons of plastic every year, half of which is for single-use. More than 8 million tons of plastic end up in our oceans every year. Last month saw the first Green GB week, highlighting the risks we pose to our environment and how we can work towards cleaner growth. Very much a consumer focus right now, brands will be chosen on their attitude and responsible action towards the environment. Companies will be judged by the positive changes in process and chosen materials.
