Sign the pledge
Make a difference and commit to reducing avoidable single-use plastics in your business. Sign the pledge and you will be supported through a number of steps to reduce your reliance on avoidable single-use plastics across your business.
Undertake an audit
To help your business to better understand its current usage of single-use plastics make sure you take an audit. This will give you an estimated baseline of non-essential (avoidable) single-use plastics that can be easily removed or significantly reduced from your day-to-day operations.
Where you can’t remove or significantly reduce single-use plastics, identify those items that can be replaced with a more sustainable option. Remember to consider the overall ‘life-cycle’ impact of any replacement including disposal routes and cost implications to your business.
There are a lot of so called ‘eco’ products on the market and we’re committed to providing clear and practical advice to businesses that will set you up to succeed in making sustainable choices.
