The Plastic Waste Challenge
The mission to reduce reuse recycle plastic is becoming more relevant today. A report by the Australian Marine Conservation Society (AMSCS) and World Wildlife Fund Australia calculated that the greenhouse gases generated to produce the plastics that Australians consume each year are equivalent to pollution from 5.7 million cars, or 16 million metric tonnes of gases, and the consumption of plastic is still growing every year.
In fact, the Carbon emissions assessment of Australian plastics consumption report found that, under current trends, emissions from Australia’s plastics will more than double by 2050 to 42.5 million metric tonnes a year.
This alarming statistic highlights the urgent need for individuals, communities, and governments to take action to reduce plastic consumption. Fortunately, there has been a growing awareness and emphasis on the importance of recycling and using sustainable alternatives to plastic.
Many individuals are now actively seeking out ways to minimise their plastic waste, such as using reusable shopping bags, water bottles, and food containers. Additionally, businesses and industries are also recognising the significance of adopting eco-friendly practises and are making efforts to reduce their plastic packaging and waste.
Boxhead Plastics is one of these companies dedicated to providing a sustainable and lasting solution to our growing piles of plastic waste. One aspect of our operation focuses on recycling scrap plastic car bumper bars, which are typically discarded in landfills.
On the other hand, we focus on selling recycled plastics products under the Naiteev brand, such as coasters and golf products, which are manufactured using the feedstock from our recycled bumper bars. By recycling plastic bumper bars, Boxhead Plastics not only reduces the amount of plastic waste into landfill but also repurposes the materials to create new and unique products.
The Naiteev brand offers a range of recycled products that not only serve a practical purpose but also contribute to a more sustainable future. With these initiatives, Boxhead Plastics aims to inspire other businesses and individuals to prioritise eco-friendly practises and reduce their reliance on single-use plastics.
