THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) - Consumer products giant Unilever, whose brands include Dove soaps and Lipton teas, said Monday it aims to halve its use of non-recycled plastics by 2025. The move, which appears crafted to resonate with younger, more environmentally aware consumers, will require a "fundamental rethink" in the company's packaging policies, said CEO Alan Jope.
