5 Ways to Reduce Your Plastic Footprint

Posted by PremiumVials on

The world is facing a global plastic epidemic. With 5 trillion pieces of plastic in our oceans, we are losing around one million sea birds annually. Although, 8 million tons of PET is recycled annually, nearly 2 million tons of plastic ends up in landfill, causing environmental pollution. This means not every plastic that we consume and dispose of gets recycled, leading to deterioration of the environment.

While we all are responsible to reduce our negative impact on the environment, businesses should take the lead to reduce their plastic footprint and bring a positive change. Here are the top 5 ways for businesses to reduce plastic waste and resulting toxicity.

Use Recyclable Products

With consumption of over 190 billion bottles, plastic containers account for 10 percent of plastic waste every year. Moreover, it takes over 15 million barrels of oil to manufacture, transport, and dispose of plastic bottles each year. As a solution, businesses can choose reusable plastic products to prevent some of the plastic from ending up in the landfills.

Use Glass Products

Companies can replace plastic products with glass ones to lower their consumption as well as wastage. For instance, botanical laboratories can use glass jars for storing seeds instead of plastic containers. With glass products, not only can organizations reduce their plastic footprint, but also save on the purchase of containers and bottles.

Develop and Implement Environmental Friendly Policies

Developing and implementing an environmental friendly policy can help organizations constantly monitor their plastic footprint, alter their consumption pattern, and reduce their impact on the environment. Here are some of the ways to create an environmental friendly culture within the organization.

A critical approach to managing your footprint is to ask if the use of plastic item is indispensable. Look for closer alternatives to substitute high-concern plastic with a safer alternative. By selecting safer alternatives, you can dramatically reduce your plastic footprint.

Choose Safer Polymers

When the use of plastic is indispensable, the best thing you can do is to shift to safer polymers with fewer additives and better manufacturing score. Plastics with safer polymers may contain lesser harmful addictives as well as have reduced manufacturing footprint.

Use Post-Consumer-Recycled (PCR) Products

PCR products leave considerably lower chemical footprint by bypassing the negative impact of polymer manufacturing. However, for companies seeking environmental friendly solutions, using PCR products is the most preferred option to reducing their plastic footprint.
