A group of Essex businesses are getting together to cut plastic waste. ‘It’s a simple initiative,’ a spokesperson said. ‘We know we can’t do without plastic, it drives business. But we want to draw people’s attention to the opportunities to reduce waste.’
The group are quite simply asking businesspeople to commit to making steps, no matter how small, on waste reduction. They believe it’s just a matter of being aware, and making choices that become second nature.
The first step is simply to visit the site and make a commitment on behalf of your business – it’s quite painless.
‘At a networking meeting, one businessperson explained that he was already finding ways in his private life to reduce his plastic waste. That was the spark. If each business made similar choices the impact would be significant.’
