Plastic is valuable because it consists of one of our most valuable resources: petrol.
Recycling plastic therefore conserves this raw material and reduces the size of the piles of garbage.
We encounter products made from recycled plastics in a new form every day:
What used to be a yoghurt pot yesterday can already be a practical carrier bag or a sturdy garbage bag today.
The advantage for the environment is that these products are made from at up to 80% recycled plastic.
