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.

We are the Plast Award 2021 nominees!

We have been nominated for the Plast Award 2021 by Plast Industrien. We are members of this prestigious group together with other companies. This award is given for our contribution to the promotion and development of the plastics industry. An important aspect is also building public awareness that plastic, when used properly, is not a threat.

Achieving this was possible thanks to the continuous cooperation and efforts of our entire team, starting from the idea to the delivery of the product to customers. This is why we are able to provide you with a wide range of recyclable products made of recycled material.

This common motivation also allows us to establish successful collaborations such as the one with Selina Juul to promote a responsible attitude towards food waste.

Plast Team x Selina Juul

Food waste is a global scandal. In European Union alone, around 88 million tonnes of good edible food are wasted annually. Globally, over one third of the world’s produced food is either lost of wasted.

At Plast Team, as one of the leading European companies in supplying plastic home products in the categories of Food Storage and Kitchenware etc., we want to contribute to end the global food waste scandal – and actively contribute to the implementation of UN Sustainable Development Goal 12.3: to reduce the world’s food losses and waste by 50% by 2030.

That’s why Plast Team has teamed up with one of the world’s leading award-winning experts on food waste: Selina Juul.

Together with Selina Juul we have created and designed a product series of intelligent Food Storage for households – and much more – to prevent and reduce household food waste. Many reports say that most food is wasted in the Western households. And at Plast Team, we want to help stopping this waste of food.
