Tackling Plastic Waste

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.

This solution was featured in Reimagining Plastics market of the 2018 Global Opportunity Report, and was selected based on the criteria of that report.
