According to a September 27, 2022 Green Chemistry news release “… 55% of General Mills shareholders voted Tuesday in favor of a Green Century shareholder proposal [about the 18 minute mark of the recording] urging the company to issue a report to determine if and how the company can increase the scale, pace and rigor of its sustainability efforts by reducing plastic packaging … Investors have sent an unmistakable message that General Mills needs to do something about its plastic packaging footprint … General Mills’ competitors including Kellogg’s, Unilever and Procter & Gamble have made public commitments to reduce plastic packaging by 2025 … This majority vote from shareholders gives General Mills marching orders to establish a baseline plastic footprint so the company can assess what’s possible …” #PlasticWaste #SingleUsePlastic #MicroPlastics #Recycling @GeneralMills @Green__Century
