More frightening facts that give rise to trade:
- Every German generates more than 600kg of waste - per year!
- In 2016 Germany consumed almost 12 million tons of plastic
- Prognosis: Another 34 billion tons of plastic will be produced by 2050!
- Many plastic products are only used for an average of 5 minutes - before they are thrown away!
Why recycling is so important - and what we can do about itJust under 9% of plastic waste is recycled. Recycling is an incredibly important step on the way to sustainable living and a healthy environment. The best alternative, however, is not to rely on plastic products in the first place. Because even during the production of the plastic items, substances that are harmful to the environment and health are released that cannot be recycled.
In the production of our stainless steel boxes, on the other hand, we pay attention to fair production - we are from first to last step completely sustainable and environmentally conscious.
We all know the horrific images when a turtle's stomach is pumped full of plastic because the plastic wasn't disposed of properly.
