The DFI Pledge: We Will Save 1 Billion Bottles From Landfill By 2025
Plastics is a sustainability topic that is not going away.
It is clear that the conversation surrounding plastics waste will continue to become exponentially louder, with businesses, consumers and governments alike igniting a worldwide revolt against single-use plastics.
Against a backdrop of consumer activism plastic-free packaging and national plastic bans, ever-changing and ever stricter legislation surrounding plastic is coming in to force.
At DFI, we believe everyone has a role to play in changing how plastic pollutes the environment and that’s why we want to make visible how we can help impact this global plastic waste epidemic.
Measure Of Success.
Our range of ethically sourced products is designed to reduce the impact of plastic pollution while we work to the mantra of remove, reuse and recycle wherever possible.
Our core range of rPET recycled bags directly stops plastic bottles from polluting the environment. Our Travel Bag and Shopper Bag products are made from 100% recycled material and can be measured in the number of bottles we use.
As an example, our Travel Bag will directly save 3 plastic bottles from heading to landfill.
Through our sales process, we can measure exactly how many bottles we save. By 2025 we pledge to have saved 1 billion bottles from polluting the environment by turning them in to recycled, reusable bags that retailers love and that shoppers can use and enjoy over and over again.
Part Of A Global Movement.
Big-name corporates and retailers across the globe have bared the brunt of the war on plastics, with consumers unwrapping products during demonstrations and petitioning for change from the business community.
But big business in reacting and that’s why DFI are proud to commit to our own Plastics Pledge.
Whether by choice, conscience or convenience, there is some serious activity by big corporate companies to reduce their plastic pollution.
Globally more than 5 Trillion plastic bags will be produced in 2019
That’s 160,000 bags per second
Worldwide, consumers will buy 450 Billion plastics bottles
That’s 1 Million plastic bottles every minute, 20,000 every second
