Increase Your CSR Environmental Credentials
In today’s competitive market, your brand reputation matters more than ever. As consumer attitudes shift towards environmental responsibility, integrating sustainable practices into your business can give you a competitive edge.
A robust Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) profile can not only attract more customers but also better talent and even investment opportunities.
Conservation of Resources
The raw materials for producing plastic come from non-renewable sources like oil, coal, and natural gas. By recycling plastic, you’re essentially giving these materials a second life. This conservation of resources results in reduced dependency on virgin materials, making it a win-win for both businesses and the planet.
The recycling industry provides numerous employment opportunities in collection, sorting, and processing of materials.
Although the initial setup for a recycling program may require an investment, the long-term gains outweigh the costs. Manufacturers using recycled materials often find it less expensive than using raw materials, and these savings can also be passed on to consumers.
Why Waste Plastic Should Be Segregated at Source
Enhanced Recycling Efficiency
Efficiency is the key to a successful recycling program. When plastic waste is segregated at the source, it becomes much easier to sort and process. Mixed waste often contaminates plastics, rendering them unfit for recycling. Proper segregation eliminates this issue.
