Products We Can Be Proud Of
Plastic is cheap, convenient and versatile. So much so that we are producing nearly 300 million tons of it every year, according to recent figures on PlasticOceans.org. Half of this mountain of plastic is for a single use. Staggering. It’s no surprise we've created a colossal environmental issue.
Over 8 million tons of plastic waste ends up in our oceans every year. A recent Foresight Future of the Sea Report commission by the UK Government warned that plastics in the world’s oceans could treble in the next 10 years unless there is significant and serious action. Increasing prevalent are images of marine life entangled in plastic or succumbing to smaller fragments known as microplastics. Microplastics are recognised as one of the most prevalent pollutants in marine environments.
Consider a few more stats from PlasticOceans.org. Annually, 500 billion plastic bags are used, with an average “working life” of just 15 minutes. Our disposable lifestyle is out of control. Over 40% of total plastic usage is in Packaging. By far the largest end-use market segment.
