"The company said it would work with the industry-led Waste Free Oceans initiative and the UK recycling plant Closed Loop to recruit fishing communities working in the British waters off the North Sea to collect plastic." This is a significant idea! The fishing communities being given the incentive to help clean up''''''''our mess""""".

"But the move may prompt questions about the company's decision to focus on packaging at a time when many other manufacturers are devoting their energies to reducing packaging by encouraging refilling of existing containers and developing highly concentrated products."

This is unfair - they should know that Ecover already does these things, as the company rightly says, they are moving on from that.

I already buy Ecover, but I'll make sure to carry on, and I'll look out for their new packaging!

Education and strict laws are necessary to prevent plastic getting into the sea in the first place. Most people are so selfish and stupid.
