Getting Drastic With Plastic
We were delighted to support our client Iron Mountain in their initiative to ditch plastic and improve the environment site by site. Towards the end of last year, 20 sites had gone plastic free and to date another 12 have joined the initiative. Meridian was able to get involved by providing around 50 reuseable water bottles for our temps to use on the DWP site.
The next step for Iron Mountain is to get out into the community and help clean up our beaches and local parks, reducing waste, especially plastic and promoting recycling.
More than eight million tonnes of plastic are dumped in our oceans each year
90% of all seabirds have pieces of plastic in their stomachs
