Season's Greetings

The Plastico Team would like to join us in wishing you a very Merry Christmas.


This year we will make a donation to The Royal Marsden Hospital: www.royalmarsden.nhs.uk, London, in place of sending Christmas Cards. We are delighted to support the hospital, which does some amazing work in Cancer treatment, research and care.

We hope that you will enjoy the celebrations and wish you a prosperous New Year.

Please note that our offices will be closed after Monday 24th December until Wednesday 2nd January 2019. Please place your orders by Friday 14th December 2018.

Following the recent announcement by the UK Government launching  a consultation on a proposed ban of the sale & supply of plastic straws, plastic drink stirrers and plastic stemmed cotton buds, Plastico has prepared this document which we hope will help you and your customers understand exactly what the announcement means and what action is required in the short and long term.

We now enter a 6 week consultation period when all stakeholders will be asked to respond to the proposed ban. Once all submissions have been received, reviewed and analysed, it is highly likely that the ban will start going through the legal requirements for it to become law, the plan is the ban becomes effective from October 1st 2019.

The key message we want to get across is that no-one needs to make any immediate changes to what they do, clearly as the date for the proposed ban gets closer, action must be taken.

We have prepared a list of questions that we think your customers may be asking and have provided answers that we believe are accurate at this moment in time. (please see PDF)

Should you have any other question or concerns or indeed need any help, please do not hesitate to call Plastico on : 020 8646 0456, we will do all we can to help.
