HOW CAN A PLASTIC MANUFACTURER HELP IMPROVE OUR PLASTIC FILLED OCEANS?
FOR ONE – We don’t make the type of plastic mostly found in the sea. This is usually single use plastic, for example; Plastic bottles, bags, straws, q-tips and polystyrene.
OUR PRODUCTS HAVE MORE THAN ONE USE – We make quality REUSABLE plastic products for the home. Our products are built with quality in mind and last far longer than your average plastic bag for single use water bottle.
HOW WE WILL HELP WITH THE SOLUTION
1. PROMISE to help create ways of reusing household and post industrial plastic waste
2. MAKE durable, re-usable plastic products from industrial and household single use plastic waste.
We have pledged to help the current plastic crisis by making durable, re-usable plastic products from industrial and household single use plastic waste.
We are currently developing new product ranges that will be made from this recycled material. Look out for any products with a recycling icon next to them.
WE RECYCLE OUR OWN PLASTIC WASTE
As part of the injection moulding process we produce products that don’t pass QC.
WHY DOES THIS HAPPEN?
When changing moulds to make different products the machine is turned back on and the plastic is run through the machine. This produces one product that is only partly moulded because the mix running into the machine hasn’t completely filled the system.
When changing to a new colour. To do this a few products are run through the machine until the colour is accurate. After running a few products, the waste colour is pushed out of the system.
WHAT HAPPENS TO PRODUCTS THAT DON’T PASS QC?
If the product is properly moulded and still holds it’s main function but the colour isn’t accurate, we often use these around the warehouse for storage. Otherwise all partly moulded products and defect products go into our grinder. This product is ground, made into new pellets and mixed with black plastic pellets to be re-moulded into products such as our Eden dust bins.
