When people make a decision to use a business, there are a number of factors they like to consider when making their decision. And in the modern world, one of the greatest concerns for customers is to consider brands that are more environmentally conscious. Being greener in daily life has become much more of a focal point in the Western world, and happily, businesses are following suit. There are so many great reasons for companies to focus on how they can be more eco-friendly these days. And one of the best, easiest, and most effective ways of a business being able to be more environmentally friendly is to look at plastic recycling as well as waste plastic and other factors that can determine whether a brand is eco-friendly enough. Here are some of the UK’s most environmentally friendly brands, based on recycling rates, as well as recyclable packaging.

The company prides itself on being one of the most eco-friendly brands out there and continues to grow and develop its greener sensibilities. One of the biggest USPs for Lush is the fact that it uses only vegetarian recipes for its products, 85% of which are also vegan. Lush also refuses to be associated with companies or suppliers involved in animal testing and is focused on biodiversity in a big way as well. The company also donates profits to an array of worthy environmental causes, such as animal welfare, human rights, and environmental conservation.
