As a business we are acutely aware of the damage that plastic has on the environment and we are determined to lead the way in our industry to remove as much ‘single use plastic’ from the supply chain. It hasn’t been an easy change but one that we’ve persevered with to develop alternative ‘plastic free’ packaging for much of our copper and fibre product lines, as well as reducing card board box sizes where we can. This latest drive to remove single-use plastic bags from a range of Excel products is the latest example of our efforts to improve our sustainability – but it is by no means the end of the road. Our responsible packaging solutions will become the standard as stocks of the current packaging designs are depleted.
— Jason Rudge, Commercial Procurement Director
We are removing all of the single-use plastic from the majority of the Excel product packaging.
By switching to "natural" brown packaging options, we will be reducing our annual single-use plastic bag usage by more than 16 million bags, based upon our 2018 sales figures. This is the equivalent of over 40 tonnes of single-use plastic being removed from the supply chain and replaced with 100% recyclable packaging.
