Our sector is a consumer sector. Many things are added that we don’t actually need. They are often made of plastic, which cannot be recycled. Plastic exists 60 years! 8.3 billion tonnes of plastic has been made. An unimaginable mountain of rubbish, therefore, that is burnt or has landed on the rubbish. It takes almost 400 years for plastic to break down. So most plastic still exists in a different form. The prediction that the oceans in the middle of this century is literally more plastic than fish is one of the most cited statistics. So now we have to catch up.
We are looking for good quality products that are made from (sustainable) materials that can be reused or are circular. We no longer want to add clutter to the mountain of waste.
