‘Together, we have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to rethink and reshape the future of plastic’
More than 40 major businesses have pledged to eradicate single-use plastics from packaging in an effort to tackle the global pollution crisis.
With members across major food and non-food brands – including Sainsbury’s, Nestlé and Coca-Cola – the pact’s participants are collectively responsible for more than 80 per cent of the UK’s supermarket plastic packaging.
As the first initiative of its kind in the world, it is hoped the pact will serve as a template for other countries and spark a “global movement for change”.
