FMCG – The Driving Force Behind the Plastic Pollution Crisis

Single-use plastics spread on a beach

Fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) brands are promoting and sustaining our modern throwaway lifestyles that are driving the plastic pollution crisis. In most developed countries we have become reliant on the plastic infused convenience products and it has become nearly impossible not to create plastic waste. Every year we are throwing away kilo after kilo of plastic waste – from the packaging covering our food and hygiene products, to our single-usage toiletries and household products. Our overconsumption of these products is encouraging the mass production of single-use plastics that are polluting our ecosystems and harming biodiversity.
