“I am very excited to receive this award and partner with the world’s #1 shampoo brand Head & Shoulders in what is the most significant solution to marine plastic that we have ever seen. Plastic waste is a monumental global issue that needs to be addressed with urgency. Almost everything in the world is made from plastic and only 2% of the world’s plastic is recycled, with much of it ending up in waterways and ultimately in the ocean,” said Tom Szaky, CEO, TerraCycle.
“As a leader for the recovery of waste into high quality Secondary Raw Material and green energy, SUEZ aims to protect the environment by eliminating the idea of residual waste. The Head & Shoulders beach bottle is a landmark solution that prevents 60% of CO2 emissions from being emitted compared to using virgin HDPE and uses 85% less fossil fuel energy. We are honoured to receive this award with our partners TerraCycle and Head & Shoulders,” added Jean-Marc Boursier, Group Senior Executive VP, in charge of the Recycling & Recovery Europe Division, SUEZ.
