DID YOU KNOW...
From the reuse and recycling of plastic materials, can we create objects that are useful in our daily lives?
When RECYCLED, POLYPROPYLENE (the material with which our cups and plates are produced) can be used to produce furnishing items, food containers, bottles for detergents and personal hygiene products, carpets, garden furniture, and more.
Plastic only becomes waste when wasted. So as long as we utilise it as a resource (recycling, reusing or saving energy), we can benefit from it.
Some interesting facts...
- By recycling around 50 pieces of plastic cutlery, a plastic document tray can be produced
- By recycling around 11 plastic cups, a plastic pen holder can be produced
- By recycling around 260 plastic plates, a plastic chair can be produced
