Just as people are familiar with seeing expiry dates on perishable food and beverage products, Plastic Expiry Date stickers aim to show the long-lasting life of plastic packaging. Environmentalists Gagandeep Jhuti and Joe Foale-Groves created these stickers in order to remind consumers of the impact plastic has on the environment, bringing awareness to the fact that plastic can take hundreds, if not thousands, of years to break down.
While there are plenty of well-intentioned brands that create products with recyclable plastic packaging, these packages often don't end up in the recycling. With these Plastic Expiry Date stickers, consumers can hopefully make better shopping choices while retailers implement alternatives to wasteful single-use plastics.
