RCP announces recycling heroes

Rubbermaid Commercial Products (RCP) has announced this year's Love Recycling Heroes, celebrating the heroes of commercial recycling and sustainability across Europe - part of its ongoing, Love Recycling programme.

Two leading heroes were awarded the highest status of Glass heroes and £500 each to donate to the sustainability charity of their choice.

Elissa Underhill, national account manager at international distributor Lyreco, was nominated for her tireless efforts to help customers improve the system efficiency of their resource and waste management process. At one customer's sites, the implementation of her suggestions has already netted an additional six tonnes of material that will be recycled, rather than added to a landfill.

The owners of London's vegan Café Van Gogh, Annabelle and Ehima, were nominated for the inclusion of multiple sustainable and social practices into their operations. Eliminating single use plastic, employing compostable packaging made from recycled material and directing food waste to composting programmes, exemplifies the idea that recycling and sustainable business practices are important for all businesses.
