Aaron Marshall, RPM Program Engagement Director, pictured with Vicki Johnston, Sustainability Adviser at Farrans welcomed them to the Program and said "we are absolutely delighted to have Farrans commit to RPM Program and to have their influence in the construction industry associated with our Program.

They will now be gaining the insights and plastic management knowledge that need to be considered to help make positive decisions for the benefit of environment and the company."
Plastic waste management is crucial for sustainable construction practices. The construction industry has been struggling with plastic waste disposal challenges as it is the second largest consumer of plastics, after packaging. Plastic reduction measures are gaining traction in the sector, with increasing interest in using recycled plastic, which is more cost-effective and durable than traditional materials. Effective plastic management will not only help in reducing the environmental impact but also in promoting sustainable development.
Kudos to Farrans for stepping up and getting involved to play its part in responsible plastic management.
