Stop single use plastic
Why must we stop single use plastic?
Although we haven’t advanced enough to remove plastic entirely, we are able to dramatically reduce our plastic creation. The creation of virgin plastic is resource intensive and a major contributor to global warming, which eventually finds its way into the environment where it poisons our fish, wildlife and oceans. At Bio Hygiene we work hard to reduce our plastic footprint.
100% Post Consumer Recycled Plastic (PCR)
PCR offers a significant reduction in the creation of virgin plastic and the associated CO2e and other environmental costs. Plastic is recycled, collected locally and recycled into plastic that can be made into bottles – there are varying levels of recycled material from 30%-100%.
Super concentrate technology
RTU and low dilution products result in more plastic being used – whether virgin plastic or PCR. Our biotechnology allows us to concentrate our products to a high level – as high as 1:200 and we provide a PCR printed bottle for ongoing use to dramatically reduce the plastic used.
What else can we do?
Bottles are only one part of the mix. Labels, caps, triggers, cardboard and plastic pallet wrap all need to be recycled and have an impact on plastic, CO2e and the environment.
