The Elimination of Consumer Single-Use Plastics

Large quantities of fossil fuels are required to produce plastic and toxic chemicals are added during its manufacture, some of which are known carcinogens and hormone disruptors. Waste plastic also largely ends up in landfill or polluting the oceans, releasing hazardous chemicals as it deteriorates, which inevitably end up in the food chain.

So – this now brings the challenge of what to do about it.

What you’ll learn:

  • The impact of plastic on the environment and the importance of eliminating consumer single-use plastics.
  • The Government’s commitment to taking appropriate action for addressing single-use plastic waste.
  • How suppliers are addressing the problem of CSUP and how they plan to reduce single-use plastics.
  • How CCS can help your organisation become more environmentally friendly, sharing practical steps on how to achieve your plastic reduction goals.
