Our commitment to sustainable packaging
As a consumer goods company, we have a clear responsibility to play our part. We are among a growing number of brands, retailers and packaging companies to make sustainable packaging commitments.
But more needs to be done to make reusable, recyclable and compostable plastic normal. And we need your help too!
Unilever Food Solutions products have different instructions about recycling and handling after use. The following downloadable guide will provide users instructions about how to handle different components of each pack. Instructions for our full range is currently being developed, and this guide will be updated regularly as we complete the process.
Our work with operators to promote recycling
Plastic waste is, as we all know, one of the biggest global environmental challenges today. To date, more than 8.3 billion tons of plastic have been created, and most of this has been discarded (source: Science Daily).
If current rates continue, 12 billion tons will be in landfill or the natural environment by 2050. This is unsustainable and requires action.
Collecting and sorting recyclable materials plays an important part in ensuring they can be reused.
Our aim is to promote recycling among operators and, at the same time, raise awareness at government and NGO level. We have a number of projects which encourage people to recycle more and help to make recycling a lifelong habit.
