A new report from UK-based campaign groups Tearfund, Fauna & Flora International and WasteAid has moved the debate about the harmfulness of plastic to a new level.
Burberry, Ganni, H&M and Inditex are among the co-signatory brands of the “New Plastics Economy Global Commitment”, which seeks the elimination of problematic or unnecessary plastic packaging through redesign, innovation, and new delivery models.
