BBC aims to be free of single-use plastics across all operations by 2020


The BBC will ban single-use plastics from its operations by 2020, in the wake of its landmark series Blue Planet II which highlighted plastic pollution in the oceans.Plastic cups and cutlery will be removed across BBC sites by the end of 2018, ending the use of around 2m plastic cups used by visitors and staff each year, the corporation said.Some sites have already begun to remove plastic cups from kitchens and replace them with glasses where possible, and this will be rolled out to all BBC offices.There are plans to remove plastic containers from canteens by 2019, starting with a pilot in Salford in February, where a coffee cup recycling scheme will also be trialled.Discussions will take place over the coming months with suppliers and services to assess when further changes can be made to cut single-use plastic in other parts of operations such as coffee cups, packaging of products the corporation buys and catering on location.
