“Dirty Dozen” Contributors to UK Plastic Waste Identified

An August 23, 2022 Surfers Against Sewage news release https://www.sas.org.uk/news/exposed-the-dirty-dozen-filling-up-the-ocean-with-plastic-pollution/ lists twelve “… companies responsible for a whopping 70% of branded packing pollution found across the UK: Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, McDonalds, Anheuser-Busch InBev, Mondelez International, Nestlé, Tesco, Red Bull GmbH, Suntory, Carlsberg Group, Heineken Holding and Mars … Businesses need to take responsibility for their polluting products and transition to models of reduction and reuse. Legislation such as an ‘all-in’ deposit scheme needs to be introduced … We’re calling on companies to end their harmful pollution by taking responsibility for the entire lifecycle of their products, reducing their packaging and adopting circular business models … We are also demanding that government introduce an ‘all-in’ Deposit Return Scheme (DRS) for drinks containers of all sizes and materials including glass, not just small containers classified as ‘on-the-go’ …” #PlasticWaste #SingleUsePlastic #Recycling @sascampaigns
