In the last four years we have saved the equivalent of 200 tonnes of plastic – that’s 70,000,000 ping pong balls, enough to fill 18 double decker buses.
Freshtime support the use of sustainable packaging choices and have action plans with key customers and suppliers to reduce our reliance on plastic packaging. We have been measuring our plastic use and seeking alternatives since 2014.
In the last three years we have saved 200 tonnes of plastic by changing our packaging material choices and continue to work with our suppliers to achieve the following:
AMBITION: Freshtime are committed to a carbon-neutral site management plan and will only use 100% recyclable packaging by 2022.
- Reduction in the total amount of packaging per product
- Rationalisation of polymer types used in packaging to simplify the sorting and recycling process
- Continue to design packaging with understanding of how it is handled at the end of life to allow increased recycling
- Working with our customers to ensure more prominent recycling logo’s and pack labelling to improve recycling possibilities
