Packaging protects the products we love and provides information about how to use them safely and responsibly – but packaging needs to become part of a circular economy.
An important partner on the path to improved recycling of waste and the establishment of a circular economy is the social enterprise Plastic Bank. The idea of Plastic Bank is to reduce plastic waste in nature while also providing new opportunities for people in poverty. In 2017, Henkel became the first major global consumer goods company to partner with Plastic Bank. In 2021, Henkel and Plastic Bank started to expand the collection and recycling infrastructure in multiple cities in Egypt. In 2022, there were 14 collection centers operating around Cairo, along the Nile River, and in Red Sea vacation hotspots.
