5 Brands that are Championing Environmentally Friendly Packaging
In the UK, we produce our body weight in waste every 7 weeks. That’s over 7 times our body weight every year.
Non-recyclable waste is sent to landfills or incinerators. Incinerators generate pollution that is harmful to our health - burning rubbish releases dioxins, lead, and mercury into the atmosphere. Incinerators are also responsible for the emission of carbon dioxide. For 1 ton of burnt rubbish, approximately 1,246 kg of carbon dioxide is emitted.
