SKY EMBRACES FIGHT AGAINST OCEAN PLASTICS
Sky is another organisation that is turning its focus on cutting the use of single use plastics. Since the beginning of 2017, the company’s Sky Ocean Rescue has looked to raise awareness of ocean plastics and sought to find ways to decrease plastic use.
It has committed to eliminate all SUP from its products and supply chain by 2020. By providing every employee with a reusable water bottle, it has saved 450,000 bottles per year.
The company’s sponsorship of Team Sky cycling team also carried the message to #passonplastic during the recent Tour de France, won by Team Sky rider Geraint Thomas. Sky has also launched a fund, Sky Ocean Ventures, which is investing £25 million to deliver more responsible consumerism. It has recently invested in Choose Water, a company that is developing a biodegradable water bottle which is expected to launch later this year.
