It is time
Plastic Pollution has reached alarming proportions. Plastics production surged to 311 million tons a year in 2014, and it is expected to double over the next 20 years. Half of plastics produced are single-use, designed to become garbage; a staggering 32% of which escapes collection to become plastic pollution. According to the Word Economic Forum, the world’s oceans will contain more plastic than fish by 2050. We all inhale and eat hundreds of microplastics daily, and nearly all humans, newborns included, test positive for the hazardous plastic additive BPA.
No longer an option
New and inevitable rules of the game for businesses mean single-use plastics must be eliminated or significantly reduced.
The European Union, the Sate of California, and other Governments, corporations and organizations all over the world have pledged to transition to a Circular Economy within an ambitious time frame, and are passing aggressive legislative measures to eliminate or reduce single-use plastics.
The transition might be daunting, but major cost savings and market advantage await those businesses with the courage to lead.
We are here to help you turn challenge – and mandate – into opportunity, savings, and competitive edge.
