OUR EFFORT TO REUSE PLASTIC
We live in a plastic era, in which more than 300 million tonnes of plastic is produced annually worldwide. 5 to 15 million tonnes of these end up in our oceans, where the ‘plastic soup’ is becoming a serious problem.
“WE DO NOT HAVE TO PRODUCE MORE PLASTIC WHEN WE USE WHAT IS ALREADY”
Plastic is an important material in the current global economy. The lack of collecting, reusing, recycling, and breaking down of plastic has major consequences in terms of the environment, health, economy, and society.
Doing nothing is not an option. All over the world, the realisation that we need to tackle this problem and reconsider the place of plastic and plastic packaging in our economy is growing. At Q-PALL, we do this by recycling.
When we were founded, our goal was to reuse 90% of the plastic. Today, 98% of the pallets are made from recycled materials. In addition, we commit to a better future by supporting projects that generate involvement in the plastic waste problem.
We all use plastic, but can’t we use less of it? And what can we do with the plastic waste to prevent it from ending up in rivers and oceans? That is why it helps if we produce less plastic and recycle more.
