Origin Manufacturing, Bradford’s popular pound wholesaler, takes the lead in plastic recycling efforts as Greenpeace launches ‘The Big Plastic Count’ nationwide to confront the pressing issue of plastic pollution in the UK. Through innovative polymer recycling at the source of manufacturing, Origin Manufacturing aims to significantly reduce plastic pollution in the UK and promote a responsible approach to plastic production, contributing to environmental sustainability.

London – April 16, 2024 – As Greenpeace announces ‘The Big Plastic Count’ for 2024, Origin Manufacturing, a pound wholesaler in Bradford, emerges as a frontrunner in plastic recycling efforts, aligning with the initiative’s mission to tackle household plastic waste across the UK.

Scheduled from March 11 to 17, ‘The Big Plastic Count’ aims to rally thousands of participants nationwide, including schools, businesses, and households, to confront the pressing issue of plastic pollution.

Plastic pollution is a looming global threat, with staggering statistics revealing its detrimental environmental impact. Approximately 350 million tonnes of plastic waste are generated annually, of which only 9% is recycled. The remainder finds its way into oceans, rivers, and landfills, posing grave risks to marine life and ecosystems. With projections indicating a doubling of plastic waste by 2050 without intervention, urgent action is needed.

Origin Manufacturing’s commitment to combating plastic pollution through recycling polymers at the source of manufacturing showcases their responsible approaches in plastic production. The company focuses on recycling a wide range of polymers, including HDPE (High-Density Polyethylene), LDPE (Low-Density Polyethylene), rPET (Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate), PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate), and Jazz (a specific polymer grade or recycling process).

HDPE and LDPE, renowned for their strength and versatility, undergo recycling processes directly at the company’s manufacturing origin. This involves collecting discarded items made from these materials, processing them and reintegrating the recycled polymers into manufacturing processes. By minimising reliance on fresh raw materials for new products, Origin Manufacturing aims to significantly reduce its environmental impact.

rPET, a form of PET derived from collected and recycled materials, represents another facet of Origin Manufacturing’s sustainability efforts. By transforming PET-based products like plastic bottles into high-quality rPET, the company contributes to the circular economy, mitigating the need for virgin PET production and curbing plastic waste.

Building on the success of ‘The Big Plastic Count’ in 2022, this year’s iteration arrives at a crucial juncture as nations strive to align global regulations for plastic reduction under The Global Plastics Treaty. Greenpeace aims to leverage data from the count to catalyse action from the government and accelerate efforts to curb plastic waste in the UK.

Participation in ‘The Big Plastic Count 2024’ is open to schools and households nationwide, with sign-up available at thebigplasticcount.com/sign-up. Upon registration, participants receive comprehensive counting packs to track daily discarded plastic items. Subsequently, completed tallies can be submitted online at thebigplasticcount.com/submit, with individual contributions culminating in a collective plastic footprint. These aggregated results would serve as compelling evidence for policymakers to enact robust measures addressing plastic waste.
