RPC bpi recycled products is partnering with the Great British Spring Clean as its sole supplier of 100% recycled plastic refuse sacks for this years’ campaign.
The environmental charity is hoping to inspire and mobilise over 500,000 volunteers across the UK to go out and help clean up their local areas.
250,000 blue branded refuse sacks have been exclusively manufactured from post-consumer retail packaging at RPC bpi recycled products’ manufacturing site in Heanor, Derbyshire.
Partnering with the Great British Spring Clean, an annual event run by the UK-based independent charity ‘Keep Britain Tidy’, was an obvious choice for RPC bpi recycled products – the two companies share the common goals of embracing the environment and preventing waste.
Lorcan Mekitarian, Sales Director at RPC bpi recycled products said: We are proud to be the charity’s chosen supplier of refuse sacks. We are dedicated to our sustainability agenda and take our green credentials and the circular economy very seriously. Our wash and recycle facilities are state of the art and can recycle over 70,000 tonnes of post-consumer, retail and agricultural plastic each year.
The Keep Britain Tidy charity partnered with RPC bpi recycled products as they could produce 100% recycled refuse sacks, showing that the charity can be sustainable in its campaign and support second life products made from recycled plastic.
The charity inspires volunteers to clean up not only their villages, towns and cities but also our rivers and beaches. With 80% of marine litter originating from land, everybody can play their part in preventing littering everywhere.
