The Truth About Recycling
In recent years, there has been extensive focus on Recycling as the solution to managing plastic waste.
No thanks to multiple flaws in our recycling systems, it is estimated that only 10% of household plastic actually gets recycled.
However; Reduce, Reuse, Recycle is a waste hierarchy - and recycling sits squarely at the bottom.
Less than half of household waste is sent for recycling
Despite the considerable efforts of individual citizens, the recycling rate of UK households stands at just 44%. In some areas the recycling rate is as low as 18%.
The majority of plastic recycling is sent overseas
Over 50% of the UK's plastic recycling gets sent overseas to be processed in countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia & Turkey. This significantly increases the carbon footprint of the materials.
We don't know what happens to the waste sent overseas
For any plastic recycling sent overseas, it's almost impossible to determine how much material is actually recycled. There is widespread evidence of plastic burning and the dumping of plastic recycling.
Reduce, Reuse: Refill
The most effective thing that individuals can do to reduce plastic packaging waste is to reduce the amount they purchase in the first place - and reuse any items that are purchased.
The LiquiVend® system enables fast, smart and hygienic refills for hundreds of liquid and wet food product lines.
Now shoppers can purchase their favourite liquid cooking products, personal care products and refillable cleaning products without using new single-use plastic packaging every time.
