Making the world better has been our goal – and part of our business – for over a hundred years.
We’re currently on a mission to reduce our plastic waste footprint by giving recycled plastic a new life.
Last year alone, we saved more than 97 million pounds of virgin plastic in North America by switching to recycled content. That’s the equivalent weight of more than 217 Statues of Liberty!
By choosing to scoop, spread, scrub or style with one of our products, you’re helping to support sustainable changes to our packaging that’ll reduce plastic waste.
Together, we can all waste less resources and create a better world.
The plastic waste crisis is complicated. But the first step to improving it is better understanding it. Here you’ll find information about how plastics are currently used and disposed of in the U.S., Unilever’s approach to easing our plastic pollution, and ways you can help by making small lifestyle changes that add up to big impact.
In the U.S., we’re working to totally rethink our approach to packaging by trying to incorporate recycled materials as often as possible. Many of our brands are leading the way with packaging innovations.
