FMCG maker Procter & Gamble India has said it has become a ‘plastic waste neutral’ company in FY 2021-22, after having recycled 100 percent of post-consumer plastic packaging waste.
The company, which has a portfolio of power brands including Ariel, Tide, Whisper, Gillette, Oral B, head & shoulders and Vicks, joined the club of a few FMCG companies in India like Dabur and Nestle India that have achieved plastic waste neutrality.
It has collected, processed, and recycled over 19,000MT of post-consumer plastic packaging waste from across the country which is more than the amount of plastic packaging in its products sold in a year, P&G India said in a statement.
The company is working with recycling partners across 75 cities in India to collect plastic which is then sent to different recyclers, waste-to-energy plants, and cement kilns.
