Boohoo’s Proactive PPT Work
Boohoo has been praised for their proactive work in ensuring suppliers are aligned to comply with the UK plastic packaging tax. The plastic packaging tax began in the UK on April 1st 2022. It applies at a rate of £200/tonne on plastic packaging with less than 30% recycled plastic, manufactured or imported into the UK.
How Has Boohoo Been Proactive?
Boohoo have sourced a supplier that uses 100% recycled materials and recyclable packaging. They are also looking to continue using independent suppliers as long as they can prove that their poly bogs used are at least 50% recycled materials, and made from LDPE (low density polyethylene) only.
Kathy Illingworth, Head of Sustainability Consulting
“It’s heartening to see the proactive steps Boohoo Group is taking regarding PPT. Whether your priority is to reduce the plastic in packaging, increase the recycled content, or even figure out where to start with plastic packaging, it all begins with opening a dialogue with suppliers. This catalyst sets everything else in motion, from conveying accurate information about degradability and recyclability to tackling waste, increasing recycled content, and collaborating on solutions to reduce plastic use.”
