Key Supporters’ Comments

Janes Bevis, Chair “OPRL Ltd, the providers of the widely used UK On-Pack Recycling Labelling scheme, is in talks with Delphis Eco and the Good Business Company on how a recycled content labelling and accreditation scheme might be established and administered.”

London Mayor’s Office “It is pleasing to hear of the work you are undertaking to promote the use of recycled plastic. The Mayor's London Environment Strategy, published in May 2018, sets out the Mayor's aims to work towards a circular economy through supporting clever designs of goods, including maximising the recycled content of packaging products.”

Tim Adams, Marketing and Corporate Sales Director “The effective recycling of plastic is vital in reducing waste and environmental damage, and greater efforts need to be put into this”.

Sir Tim Smit, KBE, Co-founder of the Eden Project & Vice Chair of Eden Project Ltd “We need to act now and this seems like a good place to start. The Recycled Plastic Rating will clarify an area which mystifies many consumers, and allow us to take greater responsibility for our plastic usage. It’s a great initiative, and I hope the Government is watching closely and will move fast to make this RPR mandatory.”

Jo Ruxton, Founder “I welcome any process that allows people to think about the fate of the items they buy. There is now growing concern for our environment and that means consumers are looking for ways to reduce their impact upon it, this new labelling is a very positive first step”.

Julie Barker, Non exec board director of WRAP “We welcome the launch of the RPR mark that will encourage manufacturers to do more and give consumers visibility of what they are seeing”

Karen Lynch, Managing Director “We welcome the launch of the RPR mark that will encourage manufacturers to do more and give consumers visibility of what they are seeing.”
