Industry-wide problems demand an industry-sized response. For this reason over 45 brands and retailers from the outdoor industry are working together to take responsibility for their single use plastic poly bags.One alternative we are implementing is to remove and properly care for protective plastic bags before they end up in incinerators, landfills, or are sent for export. Started in 2018, the Single Use Plastics Project, (an initiative of the European Outdoor Group) has sought to research and assess the impact of plastic bags in the supply chain of outdoor clothing and equipment, and to work swiftly towards making a meaningful impact on the problem.
