2018-10-29

The Ellen MacArthur Foundation announces its Global Commitment, "A line in the sand" a commitment to eliminate plastic pollution at the source. The Global Commitment aims to create ‘a new normal’ for plastic packaging.

Targets of the initiative include:
• Eliminate problematic or unnecessary plastic packaging and move from single-use to reuse packaging models
• Innovate to ensure 100% of plastic packaging can be easily and safely reused, recycled, or composted by 2025
• Circulate the plastic produced, by significantly increasing the amounts of plastics reused or recycled and made into new packaging or products


Eliminating unnecessary and problematic plastics is an essential part of the Global Commitment vision, and will make it easier to keep remaining plastics in the economy and out of the environment.
