Keeping the Great British Spring Clean
Sustainable
R
PC bpi recycled products has
partnered with the Great
British Spring Clean as its sole
supplier of 100% recycled plastic
refuse sacks for this year’s 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 UKbased 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 postconsumer, 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.
