A holistic plastic solution

  • 2 mins read

Thought provoking and educating article on the plastic solution from Biffa and another congratulations to Sainsbury’s for its efforts to think holistically about its packaging. 

More thought still required around biodegradable plastic which, if introduced piecemeal, could cause significant issues with our ability to recycle other plastics (as separating biodegradable plastic from non-bio plastics is not easy to do - meaning recycled plastics would contain bio-degradable material which disrupt the usability of the recycled products). 

Perhaps the solution is to only allow clear plastic for non-bio plastics, and colour all bio plastic a green tint (though still hard to separate using technology, picket lines at MRFs can be used).
