Prevented Ocean Plastic (POP): Helping to build a sustainable future

Plastic pollution, especially in our oceans, has become a pressing issue that demands immediate attention. By adopting Prevented Ocean Plastic (POP) practices, we can work towards a cleaner and more sustainable future, preserving marine life and creating a positive impact on our planet. Join us on this journey as we explore the significance of POP and our commitment to working collectively with our supply chain partners to provide sustainable packaging options.

Plastic packaging has become an integral part of our daily lives, offering convenience and functionality. However, its environmental consequences cannot be ignored, particularly in relation to our oceans. Plastic waste poses a significant threat to marine ecosystems, with devastating effects on marine life, coral reefs, and the overall health of our oceans. It is essential for us to address this issue and take responsibility for the impact of plastic packaging.

At BlueSky, we understand the urgency of this matter and are dedicated to making a positive change. Embracing POP is a key step in our commitment to sustainability. POP involves intercepting and managing plastic waste before it reaches our precious marine ecosystems. By actively preventing plastic pollution, collectively we aim to minimise its harmful effects and create a more sustainable future for generations to come.

Our approach to POP goes beyond rhetoric. We work closely with our supply chain partners to ensure that our packaging materials are sourced responsibly. We have been focused for some time on the benefits of Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) content in packaging, and can support you every step of the way to incorporate such packaging into your product range. POP is one important aspect of the overall PCR offer. Through collaborations and partnerships, we are involved in bringing to you, packaging that is a result of initiatives that collect and recycle ocean-bound plastics, transforming them into sustainable packaging solutions. By utilising POP, we can off you packaging options that contribute to the reduction of plastic waste and promote a circular economy.

The benefits of embracing POP extend beyond environmental preservation. By choosing packaging solutions that incorporate Prevented Ocean Plastic, you can enhance your brand image and demonstrate your commitment to corporate social responsibility. Consumers are increasingly seeking out environmentally responsible choices, and by providing sustainable packaging options, you can differentiate your company in the market and attract conscious consumers.

“We believe education and awareness play a crucial role in driving change. BlueSky is actively engaged in a range of projects to bring sustainable packaging offers to our customers. We are committed to providing you with environmentally responsible packaging choices that align with your values and contribute to a healthier planet.” Adrian Wade, Head of Supply Chain at BlueSky
