Cheshire Packaging has seen the swing in the market towards eco-friendly packaging options with customers preferring a recyclable option over a non-recyclable one.
Statistics have revealed that 40% of the plastic produced for packaging is only used once then discarded making it a less cost-effective solution.
People and companies are also taking responsibility to change into their own hands with the London Marathon setting a new record for plastic recycling with an incredible 350,000 bottles collected within 6 hours.
