The last three months – since its official launch as a membership organisation – has seen Products of Change gain considerable ground on many fronts and different sectors. Due to the recent legislation changes throughout Europe and the UK, Products of Change has forged close links with Recoup (the national charity developing plastics recycling) to inform and consult industry for the new plastics tax.

Products of Change has also been working with DEFRA (UK Gov) and Wastebusters (the leading environmental education not for profit organisation). As part of its global mission, POC has opened up dialogue with the Beijing Government through their Open Beijing initiative to work on improving the sustainable supply chain.

“We have achieved a lot in our first quarter, but this has been down to the support and input from leading organisations, such as the Ellen MacArthur Foundation as well as the will and passion of our members,” Helena underlined. “The only way to shift our industry forward is to work together, and this is exactly what we are doing across all sectors. It’s pretty phenomenal and I’m so proud of the work the Products of Change group is already achieving. As more members join, we will be able to achieve even more.”
