October 10, 2019 00:00:00

Consumer products giant Unilever, whose brands include Dove soaps and Lipton teas, has said it aims to halve its use of non-recycled plastics by 2025.

CEO Alan Jope said that the plan to slash use of the so-called virgin plastics will require a "fundamental rethink" in its packaging policies, reports AP.

The company aims to achieve the goal by reducing its use of all plastics by 100,000 metric tons and using more recycled plastic.

Unilever previously pledged to make all its plastic packaging reusable, recyclable or compostable by 2025 and to use at least 25 per cent recycled plastic in packaging by that year.
