How to solve the problem of Plastic bags in waste.
Getting rid of plastics has traditionally been difficult. Conventional plastics do not break down easily and whilst several of the common plastics can be recycled back into themselves or recycled into other products, we still see significant volumes making their way into the environment.
It’s time to find a more sustainable substitute for plastic and look at a future with Biodegradable Shopping Bags.
So, what is being done to combat this? The same science that has been used to create plastic is now also being used to assist with its disposal.
Let’s focus on just one area of this topic; plastic bags. Over recent times we have seen a number of core developments, designed to provide some relief to our environment and to assist us all in our quest to reduce waste and find safer alternatives to protect the environment.
Landtopia® PP non-woven material manufactured using the additive technology is shown to be biodegradable under conditions of landfill disposal.
Eco-friendly plastics can be categorised broadly into 3 areas:
- Recycled plastics: plastics made from recycled plastic materials rather than raw petrochemicals.
- Biodegradable plastic bags: made from traditional Petro-chemicals, but, using the wizardry of science, are engineered to break down in the environment over short periods of time.
- Bioplastics: made from natural materials such as corn starch and maize etc
Here at Vivid Promotions, we are increasingly being asked for eco-friendly products.
One solution we have been implementing through our network is to offer more biodegradable plastic bags. We are constantly offering new solutions for clients who wish to offer more eco-friendly options to their own clients.
