Recycled mixed plastic toolkit factsheets

As you've probably heard by now, ECO-Buy has been working on a series of factsheets to support buyers in specifying and selecting recycled mixed plastic products. Research undertaken earlier in 2013 identified a number of information gaps that were making it harder for buyers to purchase recycled content plastic products.

After careful research, and consultation with buyers and suppliers, a set of 6 factsheets have been developed to help address these information gaps, including:

  1. Why use recycled plastic products?
  2. Saving money with recycled mixed plastics
  3. Making sure your product is fit-for-purpose
  4. The environmental business case for buying recycled mixed plastic products
  5. Encouraging your organisation to purchase recycled mixed plastic products
  6. Case Studies: purchasing recycled mixed plastic content products

The factsheets are being finalised and will be available on the ECO-Buy website in the next week. To see the first of the factsheets click here.
