Recycled plastics do make a difference for the environment
Implementing circular economy actions and reducing climate change are goals that most companies have in today’s world. The best way to save resources and reduce the carbon footprint of a plastic product is to use recycled plastics instead of virgin plastics as an input material when possible.
Bio-based and biodegradable materials are also often recognised as an environmentally friendly alternative to plastics, but it should be noted that they are not necessarily environmentally superior to plastics. The most valuable materials are the ones that hold value and can be used more than just one time.
