Walkers crisp company have revealed that they have recycled half a million empty crisp packets in the past 3 months. The company began the UK’s first crisp packet recycling scheme in December 2018 after a campaign by 38 Degrees called on manufacturers to ditch plastic packaging. The scheme enables people to deposit their empty packets at collection points or post them free of charge to the recycling firm TerraCycle.
However campaigners believe that the 500,000 bags recycled should be taken with a “pinch of salt” as it is a small fraction of the 11million packets made daily and represents 0.01% of plastic waste from the number made and sold annually.
