Around the world, five million tonnes of plastic are used annually, while 50% is known as single-use plastic. Since you have been reading this sentence, 800,000 plastic bags have been produced with only 8% estimated to be recycled by 2030. Unnecessary plastic is impacting our marine life, livestock and makes its way into our food chain. So much so, that the average person consumes 70,000 microplastics each year. Is your business positioned to turn the tide on plastic pollution?
More than ever businesses are pledging to remove or replace unnecessary single-use plastics. But, the Decade of Action demands commitments to be delivered through sustainability strategies and single-use plastic phase-outs.
Join The Planet Mark, Ben Jack, Director of Programme Delivery at Common Seas and Amy Targett, Head of People and Culture at Cubitts as we explore the environmental challenges of plastic and approaches to accelerate progress towards tackling plastic pollution.
