Businesses; do your bit against the blight that is single-use plastic
Single-use plastic plagues our environment forever; it never goes away, just breaks down into smaller and smaller pieces. It litters our environment and pollutes rivers, oceans and lakes. And, evidence suggests that it’s already in our food chain!
OK, we all know about the problem, but the question is: what are we all doing about it, as individuals, families, schools and businesses?
One thing is for sure: forward-thinking businesses want to be seen as part of the solution, not the problem, so there are some great companies doing great things.
For those companies that want to do their bit but don’t know where to start, we’re more than happy to help. In fact, our Plastic Clever Business initiative might just be the ideal place to start.
