Our reliance on packaging
From cardboard boxes filled with polystyrene to microwaveable meals in black trays, packaging is everywhere. It protects, preserves and helps to safely transport products from one place to the next. We couldn’t be without it.
But, recently, packaging has had a lot of bad press, with companies coming under scrutiny for using materials that are either non-recyclable or in excess. And, ultimately, these materials are ending up in landfill.
It can be recycled
At Printwaste, we are 100% committed to preventing this from happening. Yes, some packaging isn’t currently recyclable, but so much of it is. And, with supermarkets and retailers becoming more and more sustainable by the minute, hopefully it won’t be long until all packaging is recyclable.
In the meantime, we’re working with UK businesses to get the most out of their packaging waste. In our eyes, these materials are a resource, so it’s important we start treating them like one. We support businesses to see the value in this waste, tap into its potential and choose the most eco-friendly route for it to go on.
