Single Use Plastics Ban

💥From 1 October 2023 businesses must no longer supply, sell or offer certain single-use plastic items in England💥

The list includes food related items such as cutlery, plates & trays through to products such as Balloon Sticks.

The ban on these items includes:
🚯online and over-the-counter sales and supply
🚯items from new and existing stock
🚯all types of single-use plastic, including biodegradable, compostable and recycled
🚯items wholly or partly made from plastic, including coating or lining

🔂'Single use' means the item is meant to be used only once for its original purpose.🔂

Businesses should:
✅use up existing stock before 1 October
✅find re-usable alternatives to single-use items
✅use different materials for single-use plastic items
✅If you continue to supply banned single-use plastics after 1 October, you could be fined.

If you have been reliant on single use plastics in the past and are now needing sustainable alternatives then please contact one of the sales team who have new product solutions that may provide the answer.
