If you peruse the produce isles in any supermarket, you'll see fruits and vegetables encased in plastic. Plastic that is unnecessary, plastic that contributes to massive amounts of waste. Manufacturers produce mountains of waste, all in the name of visual appeal.

Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) are producers of waste.
FMCG consists of products we use everyday such as packaged foods, beverages, toiletries etc. They are essential to our day to day lives and they are convenient and easy but they also come with a lot of packaging.

If you think about it, a tube of toothpaste doesn't need a box enclosing it. A jar of marmite doesn't either, neither does cologne or milk powder. We are stuck in a continuous cycle of producing large amounts of waste as we have no other option.

The consumer can try all they want to reduce waste but if FMCG companies don't make a change the we’ll never see progress.

Through this petition, we call on all FMCG companies to reflect upon the amounts of unnecessary waste they produce and to make a conscious decision to reduce it.

Find ways to reduce the amount of packaging that will be promptly thrown away after purchase.

We also call upon supermarkets and manufacturing companies to implement programs where customers can return their packaging back to bins owned by manufacturers for recycling. Safer and easier recycling can be promoted.
Customers can also be encouraged to recycle by a reward system that offers promotions and such for their commitment towards recycling.

Reduce

Reuse

Recycle

In this day and age, these are three words we should live by to reduce the waste we produce.

By implementing the aforementioned steps, consumers as well as manufactures will see a reduce in cost and it will be highly beneficial for the future.

Help us achieve a world with less waste and landfills.
