Join us as we navigate the roads of plastics, packaging and interesting tidbits!
Here are some thought-provoking facts on how much plastic is consumed worldwide:
Plastic is made from natural gases and oils. The most widely used plastic, polyethylene, has an annual production of approximately 60 to 80 million metric tons!! (Wow!) To give you a bit of an idea what kind of volume we are talking about, an adult rhinoceros or elephant can weigh 1 metric ton. Imagine 1 rhinoceros…. times 60 or 80 million…. Can you picture that?? Good thing our bags are recyclable! Check out our reclosable bags with recycle logo.
If you really think about it, it is logical that there is so much polyethylene being manufactured annually. Practically every business uses plastic bags.
If not for product packaging, well…. where does the trash end up?!
Here is a “short” list of our customers’ businesses:
Food, apparel, pharmaceutical, jewelry, promotions, supplies, law enforcement, government offices, cosmetics, toys, machinery, construction, ammunition, eye-wear, crafts, mailings.
Hold it, still not done… also schools, music, hardware, etc.
