The UK Plastics Pact brings together businesses from across the entire plastics value chain with UK governments and NGOs to tackle the scourge of plastic waste. They are creating a circular economy for plastics, capturing their value by keeping them in the economy and out of the natural environment.
This is a campaign by WRAP (The Waste and Resources Action Programme) aimed at educating people on plastic reduction and recycling. They have a new section of this campaign aimed at soft plastics such as carrier bags and bread bags called Repeat the Cycle.
A charity doing lots of work around plastic reduction and littering and also supporting Plastic Free communities.
