Plastic. It’s a hot topic. Kick-started by the BBC’s Blue Planet 2, hardly a week goes by now without another headline image showing our oceans and beaches overrun with plastic debris.

It’s never good to see resources being wasted, let alone something that can be widely recycled. It’s worse when you see the damage that our waste can cause to ecosystems and wildlife.

But there’s good news. This focus on plastic is having an impact. Legislation is changing. And lots of organisations are taking steps to tackle the problem.

For example, Glasgow City Council will no longer provide plastic drinking straws in its museums, sports centres, offices or schools or preventing tens of thousands of plastic straws going to landfill every year. Iceland has led the big retailers by committing to eliminate plastic packaging from its own-brand products. Other retailers are now making similar pledges, such as Selfridges, which has stopped selling single-use plastic bottles of carbonated drinks. 

These actions are major steps along the way to tackling the plastic problem. But it’s not just the national brands that can make a difference. If you’re passionate about reducing the plastic waste that your business creates, there are lots of things you can do to make an impact too.

Join this webinar to find out why it’s important we all take appropriate steps, hear about the businesses that have already acted, and get detailed tips on reducing plastic in your own organisation.
