It's time to ditch single use disposable plastics
Thanks to worldwide publicity, many of us are now more aware than ever of the problems caused by plastic pollution in the environment. Plastic has been manufactured commercially since the mid-20th century and since then, it is estimated that over 8 billion tons has been produced. A staggering 6.3 billion tons of this plastic is now waste which either goes into landfill, or ends up polluting the environment.
It can take over 400 years for plastic to degrade and when you consider that the majority of plastic produced is made to be used just once, something has to change. This is where products such as vegware can help. By switching to products made from plants not plastic, you’ll be making a small change which ends up making a big difference.
Sustainable alternatives to plastics create less greenhouse gasses and use less energy during their manufacture. When they’re returned back to the soil during the composting process, fossil fuels are returned to the ground, which has to be the objective for net zero and if we are to mitigate climate change.
