Unnecessary single-use plastic packaging will be a thing of the past as businesses sign up to a world-first pact, which aims to transform the plastic packaging system in the UK and keep plastic in the economy and out of the ocean.
The UK Plastics Pact, launched today by sustainability experts WRAP, is a unique collaboration which brings together businesses from across the entire plastics value chain with UK governments and NGOs to tackle the scourge of plastic waste.
Today 42 businesses*, including major food, drink and non-food brands, manufacturers and retailers right through to plastic reprocessors and packaging suppliers have made their commitment to the Pact. These Pact members are responsible for over 80% of the plastic packaging on products sold through UK supermarkets**. In addition, 15 other organisations have also shown their commitment to the Pact.
This powerful collective has committed to hit a series of ambitious targets by 2025:
Eliminate problematic or unnecessary single-use plastic packaging through redesign, innovation or alternative (re-use) delivery models.

I wanted to take a moment to express how happy my company and I am with Kelci’s and the services of CPA. Earlier this year I was very frustrated. I had engaged my regular recruiter in seeking an engineer with a background in agriculture. (Not an easy task.) After 3 months he had not been successful. I found Kelci on LinkedIn and contacted her. The first thing she insisted on was coming here and seeing my plant. (She was the first recruiter I have worked with who did this.) She wanted to know what the working environment was like here. From there she began her search and within 6 weeks I had my engineer with a background in agriculture. I then turned to her this fall to assist in finding me a maintenance supervisor. She provided me with a number of outstanding candidates and we have just been notified that our number one candidate has accepted our offer.
Kelci is now my “go to recruiter.”
