Waste reduction and re-use has always been more challenging for organisations than simply arranging recycling and waste collection.
Recently issues with plastics have shed light on both the threats as well as opportunities to reduce environmental impacts globally with improved alternatives. Single use plastics, so called because of the short time they are used, can be removed from many business operations with relative ease.
Reviewing and prioritising alternatives without compromising the quality of goods and services may require a helping hand. EiE provides support in addressing plastics and wider waste issues from procurement to the circular economy.
Please contact us to discuss how we can help.
We have recently worked with a local authority to review waste and develop solutions to eliminating as much single use plastics as possible. There are no funded opportunities at present, however please contact us to discuss your needs.
