The campaign started by Zero Waste Europe’s Bag Free World became a global initiative to aware people around the world. The day, July 3 has been designated as the International Plastic Bag Free Day to promote the use of eco-friendly items such as paper bags or cloth bags instead of plastic bags and get rid of the single-use plastic bags.
As per United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP) report, 5 trillion single-use plastic bags are used globally every year. The world produces 300 million tons of plastic waste every year which is equivalent to the weight of the entire human population. The report also warns that our oceans could contain more plastic than fish by 2050.
It’s time to ‘Go Green’ and make environment-friendly choices if we want a pollution-free world for the next generation.
We at EcoBlue believe in recycling! Hence, for true circularity, ALL plastics need to be recycled!
Most of the demand and supply for recycled polymers pertains to only PET bottle recycling. For true circularity, we must find solutions and create demand for the recycling of complex Polyolefins like Polypropylene and Polyethylene. Unfortunately, the waste stream for Polyolefins comprises hundreds of types of material types which can make the recycling process quite daunting.
At EcoBlue, we accept this challenge and strive to provide solutions for recycling all kinds of complex materials to help our customers meet their sustainability goals. Join us on the journey to true circularity.
So today on International Plastic Bag Free Day, let us resolve to recycle all plastics!
