Achieve fully recyclable packaging within a timeframe more acceptable and environmentally friendly than 2025.
Why is this important?
I contacted Walkers regarding this, to which they replied that they’re “working tirelessly to tackle waste challenges and are committed to 100% recyclable, compostable or biodegradable packaging by 2025”. But as they already have compostable packs made from potato skins and discards, why will it take another 7 years to produce recyclable packs?
The Walkers factory in Leicester produce 7,000,000 packets of crisps every DAY and sell 60,000,000 every WEEK! That’s over 20 BILLION crisp packets that will go to landfill before their target date of 2025. This is simply unacceptable.
