Our RPM vision is that business as usual across the world will involve ‘responsible plastic management’ practices. We want to reduce the amount of virgin plastic being produced and the amount of plastic polluting our environments and oceans.

Plastic helps to shape our world and a Plastic-free society status is likely a dream but Responsible Plastic Management status for society is a practical and realistic goal to achieve.
