Check out five of our favourite companies that are thinking global and acting local when it comes to recycling plastic.
We often are asked for recommendations on how to reduce plastic waste. Our primary focus in all of our work is helping our customers do more with less. There’s a whole lot of measuring and testing that goes into this but the advancements we’ve made in product development and efficiency gains is certainly worth it.
Besides reduce their plastic use we also help our customers recycle it, with ongoing advocacy for the good work companies like Pioneer do around the country. It’s important to get this post-use process right, because far too much is still going offshore to meet unsavoury ‘solutions’. Clearly the best result is a one that can reduce, recycle and reuse New Zealand waste without this happening.
Yes, there’s still much to be done, and sometimes the challenge can seem overwhelming. So it helps that we’ve got innovators and originators like the five companies here to help inspire everyone in the battle against waste.
