SUSTAINABILITY

A sustainable enviroment

Today, many people are still not aware of the fact that producing plastic can be less damaging to produce than most other comparable products. Instead, plastic is often thought of as being one single and damaging material.

In fact, plastic often contributes to the increase of resource efficiency and lower greenhouse gas emissions and is essential to many new eco friendly innovations. It has even been projected that if alternative materials would replace the packaging used today, our society would experience twice as much energy consumption.

Therefore, as a leading manufacturer of plastic home products, we believe it is our duty to take on a prominent role and responsibility when it comes to contributing to a sustainable society. We have already produced smarter product designs that promote recycling and reuse, including new products made from regrind plastics and post-consumer recycling material.

We also believe it is important to educate and promote recycling and reduction of waste. As a result, we have introduced new symbols for sustainable solutions, to make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on what they want to buy.

Preventing food waste & consumption

At Plast Team, we have developed an app called BoxPointer, which overall serves two purposes

  • Helps you find your storage boxes and indirectly prevents you from unnecessary consumption.
  • Helps you to keep track of your leftovers and expiration dates, which will decrease food waste.

The App is compatible with our Airtight QR food storage containers and our ProBox storage box series.
