Unilever is developing new technology to tackle the global issue of plastic sachet waste, committing to 100% recyclable plastic packaging by 2025.
Unilever has committed to making all of its plastic packaging fully reusable, recyclable, or compostable by 2025, accelerating progress towards a circular economy. To achieve this, Unilever has developed a new technology, the CreaSolv® Process, which enables the recovery of plastic from sachets, channelling the plastic back into the supply chain. Sachets are sold in the billions, allowing low-income consumers to buy products in small amounts. Finding a solution to recycling sachets gives consumers access to the same products while ensuring less plastic ends up in landfill and the oceans.
