Tierr@_de_N@die: Is there a plastic system that works from an environnemental point of view? 5 brilliant ideas which could show the right way to transform the plastic industry in something fully respecting the circular economy principles.
Because try as we might, as a society we haven’t made much progress on the ‘plastics problem’. The recycling symbol has been around for over 40 years, but just 14% of plastic packaging is actually collected, and of that only 2% is properly recycled. The rest is lost during the recycling process, or goes to lower value goods. Despite best intentions, that yoghurt pot you recycled probably won’t be reborn as another yoghurt pot.
