For Global Recycling Day this year, P&G brands, suppliers and partners continue to collaborate on a range of sustainable solutions so that more material, including plastic, is collected, recycled and reused.
Global plastic production has doubled over the past 20 years, and global consumption has quadrupled over the past 30 years. But what if more packages are recycled, keeping items in use? That advances a circular system where materials have lasting use instead of becoming waste. At P&G, we believe we can help unlock more worth from the materials we use every day, long after their first use.
Partnering for Progress
For almost 10 years, P&G has been partnering with a US-based NGO, The Recycling Partnership, to help advance a circular economy by building a better recycling system. Packaging is made of different types of materials, and not all of them can be recycled together. P&G is working with experts at The Recycling Partnership to recycle more types of material, improve collection with more access to recycling and increase amounts of recycled content. And with programs like The Recycling Inclusion Fund, we are helping provide equal access to recycling services and education to improve collection rates.
Did you know many of your kitchen, bathroom, and laundry packages can be recycled? Simply check the recycling instructions on the packaging.
Your recycling adds up and…
TIP: Keep a recycling bin next to each trash can.
