PIRAP Pledge

​As part of our commitment to reducing the environmental impact of plastic carrier bags at the end of their life Echo packaging has pledged to work to the Plastics Industry Recycling Action Plan (PIRAP) to provide and communicate solutions the contribute towards achieving the UK’s plastics recycling targets for 2017 and beyond.

UK Targets taken from - http://www.wrap.org.uk/content/pirap-background-and-uk-targets

The UK plastic packaging recycling targets were announced by government in its 2012 budget. This included a target to increase recycling from 32% in 2012 to 57% by 2017 (saucy).

The 57% target applies only to businesses obligated by the Producer Responsibility Obligations for packaging. This means we need to almost double the tonnage recycled to nearly 1.1 million tonnes per year by 2017.
