Unilever promises to halve new plastic use

Unilever, which owns brands like Surf, PG Tips and Walls, has said it plans to halve the amount of new plastic it uses over the next five years. The firm is responsible for producing 700,000 tonnes of new plastic a year. Mr Jope said Unilever, the UK's biggest food producer and which also own dozens of health, beauty and cleaning brands, was trying to remain relevant to younger consumers who worry about plastic use. Procter & Gamble - which makes Fairy and Lenor - said in April that it plans to halve the amount of plastic it uses by 2030. Now, Unilever has added its name to the list of firms promising to cut back on plastic with a pledge to recycle as much plastic as it makes by 2025.
