Black plastic uses a pigment (carbon black) which is not detectable by infra-red sorting equipment. This means a lot of black plastic is not recycled. However, funded by WRAP, Nextek has developed a new alternative to carbon black. It has been trialed by companies, but no-one is actually using it at the moment. Sign this petition to get companies to stop using the non-recyclable black plastic.
We, the undersigned, request that companies in the UK only use clear plastic packaging OR begin more trials on the new carbon black alternative from Nextek.
