Plastics are created from a broad range of organic polymers and have become an indispensable part of our modern lives. Plastics are a synthetic material used in thousands of products for convenience, comfort and safety that are strong, lightweight, and moldable.
Here are five incredible ways in which plastic is helping the environment.
1) Efficient and Affordable
Plastics have a low melting point, it can be moulded, fabricated into any form and colour unlike other materials. Plastics offer improved performance through less consumption in comparison to other alternatives, resulting to saving energy, fuel and natural resources.
2) Lower Environmental Impact than Paper
In addition to the need to cut down large numbers of trees to produce paper products, the papermaking process requires vast quantities of energy and water to function. The manufacturing process of plastic bag is energy efficient it consumes up to 40% less energy and causes 70% less solid waste than a paper bag.
By helping preserve fresh flavours in frozen food, reducing spoilage and significantly extending shelf life, plastic packaging helps prevent food waste.
5) Can be Recycled into a Variety of Forms
A significant advantage of plastic is that it can be recycled into a variety of forms. Not only is this more environmentally friendly, but it also makes plastic a very flexible material for the industrial needs of the 21st century.
There is no doubt that plastic is the material of the century and Growth is a byproduct of visibility to be a part of this global gather, PlastiVision 2020 you can Book your booth today or visit PlastiVision
