...bad news for single-use plastics!

At the Our Ocean conference, hosted by the EU last week, broadcaster Sky announced their commitment to remove single use plastics from all of their operations, products, and their entire supply chain by 2020.

Following on from previous environmentally friendly achievements, Sky have been rolling out changes throughout 2017 to help them reach their new goal, such as distributing reuseable drinks bottles to employees, changing the cutlery used in their catering outlets, and dedicating a Sky channel to their Ocean Rescue campaign.

Sky have stated that they hope to "raise awareness on a critical environmental issue and influence others to act." We say "hurrah!" to this, as we do to all news about efforts to reduce reliance on single-use plastics.
