Sanford is committed to reducing, and where possible eliminating unnecessary plastics from our operations. By 2025, we have set an overall goal to reduce plastic use by 70%, and reuse and recycle those plastics that remain necessary across our operations.


Each and every one of us can do something to reduce plastics in our daily lives, and to help us all on this journey, we have developed this ‘Plastic Pledge’, with 10 simple tips that we encourage everyone to get behind. Focus on those solutions that you can commit to and attach photos to share what you have done. Describe a creative idea that can be scaled up to support a plastic-free future, include a photo to inspire others, and be in to win an eco-hamper.
 - 10 TIPS TO REDUCE WASTE PLASTIC -

Question Title

*  USE REUSABLE COFFEE CUPS
Most coffee cups have a plastic coating, and are not recyclable. Keep Cups are a great alternative to take with you anywhere.

Question Title

*  AVOID PLASTIC CUTLERY
Choose renewable alternatives, such as bamboo, carry a ‘spork’ or opt for reusable knives, forks and spoons.

Question Title

*  SAY NO TO PLASTIC STRAWS
Plastic straws are commonly found in ocean clean-ups, and can be very harmful to marine life. Use paper or stainless steel straws instead. 

Question Title

*  PACK A PLASTIC-FREE LUNCH
Avoid gladwrap or plastic bags, instead pack in paper or reusable honey wrap when you can, or use plastic free containers.

Question Title

*  USE REFILLABLE WATER BOTTLES
It takes up to 5 litres of water to create one 500ml plastic bottle, and up to 1,000 years for it to degrade, so use a refillable bottle instead. 

Question Title

*  BUY SUSTAINABLE, PLASTIC FREE PRODUCTS
Choosing sustainable, plastic free products reduces our impact on the environment, and is good for us too.

Question Title

*  TAKE A REUSABLE SHOPPING BAG
On average, single use plastic bags take 5 seconds to make for 12 minutes of use, and up to 1,000 years to degrade, so instead take reusable bags with you. 

Question Title

*  IF YOU CAN'T REUSE, RECYCLE
Up to 8,000 litres of fossil fuel can be saved by recycling one tonne of plastic, so for those plastics you can’t re-use, segregate and recycle.  

Question Title

*  CLEAN UP PLASTIC
Mobilise positive action by organising a community clean-up of a beach or park, or adopt your own area to keep clean.

Question Title

Talk about marine plastic pollution and reduction when you can, and encourage your friends to do the same
