UK manufacturer of solid format bases and natural ingredients for the personal care sector Stephenson is backing the global Plastic Free July movement.
Plastic Free July is an initiative that aims to unite and educate about the effects of single-use plastics and how to get by living without them.
The movement calls on manufacturers, businesses and consumers to work together to make communities cleaner, safer, and more enjoyable.
“Plastic Free July demonstrates that everyone can make a positive difference by examining buying habits and considering how to cut unnecessary waste at home. The bathroom is often the worst offender in the house with many products traditionally packaged in single-use plastics,” said Stephenson marketing manager Tim Pulleyn (pictured).
“Solid soap bars such as shampoos are growing in popularity yearly, mainly due to increasing consumer awareness and changing preferences for more natural and plastic-free personal care products,” he added.
“Sustainability continues to be a key business driver for Stephenson as consumers continue to look at ways to limit their plastic packaging use and save water. Plastic Free July provides the perfect opportunity for us as a business to work closely with the personal care sector and consumers to remind them of their and our collective responsibilities.”
