REA sign up to Plastic Pact

The Plastic Pact is a bold and unique initiative delivered by WRAP, that will transform the UK's plastic system. By bringing together the entire plastics value chain behind a common set of ambitious targets, it plans to move us towards a system which keeps plastic in the economy and out of the environment.
It will encompass innovation, research and new business models to rethink and redesign what packaging we put on the market in the first place and how we can encourage more re-use of packaging. 

The initiative is unique because it unites governments, local authorities, NGOs and businesses involved in producing, selling, collecting and reprocessing plastic, to
deliver ambitious targets for change by 2025.

Targets for the Pact to deliver against include:
    • Eliminate problematic or unnecessary single-use packaging through redesign, innovation or alternative (reuse) delivery models.
    • 100% of plastic packaging to be reusable, recyclable or compostable.
    • 70% of plastic packaging effectively recycled or composted.
    • 30% average recycled content across all plastic packaging
