What is plastic packaging tax (PPT)?
The Plastic Packaging Tax (PPT) is a tax in the United Kingdom aimed at reducing the use of plastic packaging and encouraging the use of recycled plastic that will apply to plastic packaging manufactured or imported in UK, that does not contain at least 40% recycled plastic by weight. The tax was introduced as part of the UK government’s efforts to address environmental concerns related to single-use plastics.
We’ve invested significant time (over 4 years) in the development and testing of rPP Bag, a Bulk bag made from recycled polypropylene, demonstrating a commitment to quality, reliability and environmental consciousness. At RDA we are already producing our FIBC’s with 40% recycled content and have developed some products with 100% recycled content.RDA we do not stand still. We are now working with our partners to move our FIBC’s to include 50% recycled content and increase our range of products that we can achieve 100% recycled content with.
