10-Week Plogging Challenge

Challenge

Our business and the industries we serve depend on the health of the ocean, but pollution from plastic bottles, bags, and packaging is a growing problem.

Action

In April, Benchmark launched a 10-week Plogging Challenge open to all employees. Our oceans and waterways are awash with plastic bottles, bags, and packaging.  ‘Plogging’ combines two worthy pastimes – jogging and picking up litter – hence the term ‘plog.’

As a group we removed over 6,000 pieces of plastic and litter from beaches, waterways, paths and parks in the UK, Belgium, Italy, the USA and Mexico.
