Why we say no thank you to degradable additives
Our plan: reduce demand for new fossil-derived polythene by recycling and re-using to make new products
We have been introduced to many degradable additives but have yet to find one that doesn’t compromise the recycling chain. Plus, why send a valuable resource to biodegrade when it could be recycled and reduce the requirement for virgin materials? Demand for products with recycled content is on the increase, fossil reserves are under pressure and global warming is a growing concern. Recycling and re-using this valuable material helps keep polythene in the chain and out of landfill and contributing positively towards the areas of concern.
