11-10-2019 15:00

Unilever is a big company. It makes many things. It promises to lower how much new plastic it uses by 2025.

Unilever is going to change how it makes its packages. It is going to lower how much new plastic it uses. Some of this new plastic cannot be recycled. However, it is going to use more recycled plastic. It is also going to change to packages that you can use again.

Unilever wants to use a lot less plastic in 2025. It wants people to use its plastic again, be able to recycle it, or be able to compost it.

Difficult words: package (a container or a thing that holds the thing that you buy such as soap or shampoo), recycle (turn a used thing into something else to use it again), compost (turn into dirt).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
