In the above topics, we can see how new ideas have been taken to prevent plastic waste as a form of technology or amendment. Let’s look at some big brands and take a pledge for plastic waste elimination by 2025.

Over 250 organizations, including Coca Cola, Lo’real, H&M in April, have pledged to eradicate plastic waste by 2025. 

All promised that 100% of their plastic packaging would be reused, recycled or composted within seven years.
