Our New Range of Biodegradable Products!

A range of polluting single-use plastics will be banned in England, Environment Secretary Thérèse Coffey announced on the 14th January 2023 from October this year.

According to estimates, England uses 2.7 billion items of single-use cutlery — most of which are plastic — and 721 million single-use plates per year, but only 10% are recycled. The ban will include single-use plastic plates, trays, bowls, cutlery, balloon sticks, and certain types of polystyrene cups and food containers. This ban will be introduced from October 2023, allowing businesses time to prepare.

In helping our customers adapt to these changes, we have introduced a new range of biodegradable bowls, plates, lids, soup bowls and more to accompany our existing range of biodegradable products.

It is expected that banning these items will have a significant impact in reducing plastic waste and littering in England. Plastic cutlery, for instance, was in the top 15 most littered items in the country by count in 2020.
