The Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) is a new piece of UK legislation introduced at the beginning of 2023, requiring businesses to change the way they collect and report data on the packaging they handle and to take responsibility for the disposal and recycling of their packaging at the end of its life cycle.

We are still in the process of assessing the impact that this regulation will have and the cost implications on the packaging we use on behalf of our customers.

Any levies associated with this regulation will be backdated to January 2023 and will be based on the packaging usage recorded throughout 2023.

CPG is committed to complying with this new regulation and doing our part to reduce waste and promote sustainability and we will provide updates to all our customers in due course.

Any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your Customer Service Team.

We are delighted to announce that we have joined Treeapp committing to planting 30 trees a month. The Treeapp is the largest platform for eco-conscious brands demonstrating our commitment to sustainability.

By planting trees with Treeapp, we are having a direct environmental and social impact around the globe. While Treeapp plants in regions that are in desperate need of more trees such as Brazil or Indonesia, they also focus on planting activities in some of the poorest regions around the world to benefit indigenous farmers and local communities with revenues from tree planting.

Treeapp also supports the United Nations SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) with their planting activities such as aiming to empower women on many of their sites and in Ethiopia all their tree planters are women.
