We like to keep all our customers in the loop with regards to environmental and sustainability news!
As no doubt you are aware, the UK Plastic Packaging Tax is a HM Treasury led initiative and comes into force this April. This tax will apply a £200 per tonne flat fee to plastic packaging that contains less than 30% recycled content. It will directly affect plastic packaging manufacturers and importers in the UK.
As such, many of our suppliers are looking at creative ways to reduce their plastic packaging and offer sustainability projects to tackle or offset this. With this in mind, we thought it would be a good idea to have a sustainable showcase section on our website that outlines projects and new technologies that our suppliers are introducing. Over the coming months we will be adding more and more for you to read through. In the meantime, click here to take a look at what is already in place.
