LONDON, Jan. 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Valgroup is promoting the circular economy with its sustainable packaging solutions.
A number of megatrends are driving sustainability including rapid urbanisation, shifting demographics and consumer expectations, and an increasing acceptance that climate change and resource scarcity are pressing problems.
In fact, sustainability is now an unstoppable force that is driving businesses around the globe. In a newly released video, Cesar Sanches, Director of Strategic Marketing and Sustainability at Valgroup, explains why plastic, often vilified by sustainability pundits, is a wonderful material that can be manufactured and processed so that it contributes to sustainability rather than having a negative impact on the environment.
This can happen through an efficient circular economy, in which our natural resources never become waste. A simple example is how old plastic bottles can be washed, processed and turned back into new bottles without any waste being produced. Alternatively, plastics can be turned back into oil and gas, which in turn can be used to produce virgin-like plastics in a truly circular fashion.
In Valgroup's new video, a number of highly credible case studies are given demonstrating how the circular economy for plastics can turn plastic into the ultimate sustainable material. Plastics need never become waste.
