No More Plastic Yogurt Pots

No More Plastic Yogurt Pots

Use sustainable glass or paper cartons for yogurt, cream and other dairy products, instead of non-recyclable plastic

Why is this important?

The UK spends around 2.3 billion a year on dairy products, and last year the average UK person bought 10.9 kgs of yogurt. Most of those yogurt-type products come in hard plastic containers that can never be recycled, often with a non-recyclable plastic lid on top. There’s no need for this - most of these products could be packaged in paper cartons or glass (many of the “luxury” yogurts already are!). I’m calling on the UK dairy industry to ditch plastic cartons in favour of other sustainable, recyclable & environmentally-friendly packaging
