Better plastics recycling: what Unilever’s decision to use ‘detectable’ black plastic means for businesses in Westminster
Unilever’s products are used worldwide by 2.5 billion people every day, with household brands including Lipton, Knorr, Dove, Hellmann’s, Surf, and many more. The company has a positive approach to sustainable business growth, and is committed to reducing its environmental footprint.
By changing the packaging on just two of their brands, Unilever expects to make a total of around 2,500 tonnes of black plastic packaging recyclable in the UK alone — an annual amount that’s equal in weight to 200 London buses.
Each successful trial that goes mainstream creates an opportunity for us to make positive, progressive changes to our own waste management in Westminster. By understanding the impact of every small change and working with the right partners, we’re proud to be among the first organisations to be in a position to put these latest developments into practice.
