If you are looking for polythene recycling, then you have come to the right place. At Plastic Expert, we recycle hundreds of tons of polythene every year, helping to keep your organization sustainable and environmentally-friendly.
Polythene is a petrochemical-based product. It is made from the crude oil that oil companies extract from underground. For many, the idea that you could have an environmentally-friendly plastic product that is a by-product of oil production seems a little far-fetched. But at Plastic Expert, we make it possible. With us, you can experience all of the benefits of polythene without damaging the environment.
There are all kinds of reasons why businesses should recycle their polythene plastic waste and here are just a few examples.
Prevent the Opening of New Landfills
In the UK, businesses and individuals throw away more than 513,000 tonnes of plastic bottles every year. The vast majority of these bottles, unfortunately, end up in a landfill. With Plastic Expert by your side, you can help to prevent this. By recycling polythene with us, you can transform your waste plastic into new products, preventing it from going to landfill and harming the environment.
Prevent Plastics from Entering the Ocean
Plastic pollution in the ocean is a serious concern. It’s finding its way into the bodies of practically all creatures that live in the sea, and it could be damaging human health too. With Plastic Expert, you can help to keep the oceans healthy and prevent more dangerous “micro-plastics” from getting into the food chain.
Reduce the Use of Energy
Extracting new oil from the ground and making it into plastic is a highly energy-intensive process. Not only do you need lots of energy to power the extraction process itself, but you also have to put a lot of energy into making the polymers that give plastic its unique properties. Creating plastic from scratch, therefore, emits more CO2.
Estimates suggest, however, that businesses that recycle their plastic cut energy usage by around 88% – nearly a factor of ten! By recycling your plastic, you help to reduce both your direct and indirect fossil fuel consumption.
Reduce the Negative Impact on The Economy
Plastic takes between 400 and 1,000 years to decompose. For this reason, it could end up having a profoundly negative impact on the global economy long term. By recycling your polythene, you help to protect the wealth of future generations.
