Recognising the need to keep plastic out of our environment, Unilever – whose much-loved everyday brands include Dove, TRESemmé, Omo and Simple – is helping Aussies take sustainability out of the too-hard (shopping) basket.
In an unprecedented move for a mass consumer brand, Unilever made the shift to recycled plastic in 2019, and now proudly displays 25%-100% recycled plastic bottles across some of its most popular local and imported brands. The shift sees old plastic milk bottles gain a new lease on life – avoiding disposal in landfill and waterways and instead, finding a renewed place in Aussie lives. Better yet, the recycled plastic bottles are recyclable too.
It's a game-changer for the conscious shopper, who is increasingly looking for options to buy better and make more sustainable decisions in the home. Now, Aussie gals and guys have the opportunity to close the loop on plastics before they even reach the checkout. By buying better with brands like Unilever, we all can help put approximately 200,000 yellow kerbside bins of plastic bottles back into the circular economy.
Reduce, reuse, recycle: other ways to kick start your own personal war on waste this Plastic-Free July:
Recycle like a pro: look out for the Australasian Recycling Label which provides Aussies with easy-to-understand recycling information, making it easier for you to put the right packaging in the right bin. The easy graphics are clear of confusion, giving you all the info you need at the point of disposal.
