Anti-Plastics campaigners A Plastic Planet, among other politicians and global business leaders, urge the EU and UK not to ignore single-use sachets in their upcoming single-use plastic directive and Environmental Bill, accordingly.
In their latest campaign, “Sack the Sachet,” they share that:
- We use 855 billion sachets every year globally, for everything from condiments to shampoo.
- That’s enough to cover the entire surface of the Earth.
- If you put a year’s worth of single-use sachets end-to-end, they would reach the moon 189 times.
These sachets are often difficult to recycle, due to the mix of materials – like food and plastics. So, they almost always go straight to a landfill. Many Vegware clients opt for sauce pumps and plant-based pots, to remove these plastic sachets from their business. Our portion pots minimise food waste by offering volume control. And, after use, both the sauce residue and pot can be commercially composted together, where accepted.
