Proctor & Gamble to Use Recycled Plastic in the UK


Proctor & Gamble have entered into a 5-year supply contract for recycled plastic in the UK.  High-density polyethylene will be used for the Ariel laundry product range.  The arrangement will contribute to the Proctor & Gamble commitment to use 50 percent recycled content for containers of liquid detergent.  The company has announced that all packaging will be recyclable by 2022 and plastic will decline to 30 percent of the total used by 2025.

Proctor & Gamble is a member of the Alliance to End Plastic Waste comprising forty manufacturers including BASF, Exxon Mobil, Henkel, Shell, Total and others.  Collectively the Alliance is investing $1.5 billion to develop technology to end plastic waste over 5 years.
