Lorax EPI endorses the Ellen MacArthur Foundation's EPR position statement

Lorax EPI is pleased to be involved in endorsing the position statement released by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation today (15th June) for packaging Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR).
It has become clear that we need a circular economy for packaging materials in which they never become waste or litter in our environment. Packaging that cannot be eliminated or reduced must be kept in circulation – in the economy and out of our natural lands and waterways.
For this to happen, we need dedicated, ongoing and sufficient funding for collection, sorting and recycling. Whilst we believe EPR is not the only solution to packaging and waste, we recognise it as a vital part of the plan to reduce, reuse and recycle our resources, and it is fantastic to see so many businesses and organisations endorsing this route forward. You can read the full statement from the Ellen MacArthur Foundation here, or watch the announcement on the latest episode of the Circular Economy Show.
