Six companies are pledging to use 100% reusable, recyclable or compostable packaging by 2025 at the latest

Six participants in the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s New Plastics Economy initiative - MARS, M&S, PepsiCo, The Coca-Cola Company, Unilever, and Werner & Mertz - are making or reiterating a pledge at the Our Ocean conference in Malta today to use 100% reusable, recyclable or compostable packaging by 2025 at the latest. This is a major step forward, and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation calls on the whole industry to follow their lead, as well as to make commitments that ensure packaging is not just recyclable, but also in practice recycled, reused or composted. One critical action is to increase demand for recycled materials. Consumer goods producer Werner & Mertz’s pledge today to use 100% recycled content in all its consumer packaging by 2025 sets a great example for others to follow. A critical mass of such commitments is essential to move towards a new plastics economy in which no plastic becomes waste.

“The Werner & Mertz Group , whose packaging is already hundred per cent recyclable, announced its commitment to use hundred per cent recycled plastic in at least 70 million bottles each year as of 2017, corresponding to sixty-five per cent of its entire annual bottle volume, aiming to go up to one hundred per cent for all its consumer goods packaging by 2025.”
