In April 2018, WRAP launched the UK Plastics Pact in association with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.
'The UK Plastics Pact is a trailblazing, collaborative initiative that will create a circular economy for plastics. It brings together businesses from across the entire plastics value chain with UK governments and NGOs to tackle the scourge of plastic waste.' (wrap.org.uk)
OPRL is one of the founding members of the Pact and will be a critical partner as it is the exclusive provider of PREP UK, which will underpin one of the goals:
By 2025, 100% of packaging (sold in the UK) to be recyclable, reusable or compostable.
Members of OPRL will gain access to PREP UK as part of their membership, which they will use to design recyclable packaging and provide a classification of each component for the on-pack recycling labels provided by OPRL.
PREP Design's mission is to Accelerate the Design of Recyclable Packaging so we're hoping that the target can be reached by most brands before 2025.
