Many Happy Returns: reusable plastic packaging

We need to rethink plastic packaging. One way is to replace single-use packaging with multiple-use packaging. The possibilities of this kind of system change will be explored by the Many Happy Returns team, who will build on the findings of Plastics: Redefining Single Use.

The need for this rethinking is well known – plastic waste is a big problem. And the waste from packaging is a massive part of it. For example, in the UK alone plastic waste from single-use packaging amounts to an estimated 2.3 million tonnes pa.

This £1 million pounds project is funded by UKRI. You can find out more this funding award here.
