UK Plastics Pact: Six month update on OPRL’s Ten Commitments

When the UK Plastics Pact launched in April, OPRL, the recycling label not-for-profit, set itself some bold commitments in supporting its members to deliver against their pledges.

Now it is reporting significant progress against key commitments.

Stuart Lendrum, executive director of OPRL said: “We committed to providing our members the tools and support they need to deliver against their Plastics Pact commitments six months ago and we’re proud to report on substantial progress.  On Tuesday we were part of a broad partnership of brands and retailers taking part in the #LeedsByExample initiative, launching the first pilot of our recycling app We Recycle.

“This world-leading innovation gives consumers advice on recycling drinks containers and coffee cups on-the-go, including where the nearest recycling bin or reverse vending machine is, (piloting in Leeds city centre). Our plans to launch further pilots on a wider range of packaging are well advanced.  This delivers the first steps on our Commitment #4.”

Jane Bevis, chair of OPRL Ltd, added: “An essential part of ensuring more plastic packaging is recycled is ensuring consumers get the right recycling advice and find it easy to recycle. We’ve grown our membership by 28 percent – 64 companies – since April, a good start on the journey to 500 members by 2020, when we aim to see our well known and trusted recycling labels on nearly every piece of UK packaging.
