Tilda is an Associate Member of the UK Plastics Pact. By 2025, The UK Plastics Pact will transform the UK plastic packaging sector and help stop plastics polluting the environment, by delivering:

  • Actions to eliminate problematic or unnecessary single-use packaging items through redesign, innovation or alternative (reuse) delivery models
  • 100% of plastic packaging to be reusable, packaging recyclable or compostable
  • 70% of plastic packaging effectively recycled or composted
  • 30% average recycled content across all plastic packaging

As a signatory to the pact, Tilda is now working to:

  • Eliminate unnecessary and problematic packaging and plastic products
  • Ensuring all plastic packaging is practically recyclable
  • Using recycled plastic in your packaging and products where possible
