Seeing plastic recycling in a whole new way
Family-run recycling company ReWorked has been making the headlines recently with their innovative new schemes – most recently for PPE & lateral flow test recycling.
Their groundbreaking campaign titled #ReclaimTheMask aims to collaborate with forward-thinking businesses to provide PPE recycling services to their staff & customers.
Why get involved?
Estimates say globally; we are using 129 billion disposable masks & 65 billion plastic gloves every month. The WWF says, “If only 1% of the worlds face masks are disposed of incorrectly, 10 million masks will end up polluting fragile ecosystems every month.
Littered facemasks & disposable PPE can be seen scattered at the side of the road, in our waterways & natural environments. Scientists even report there are now more facemasks in the ocean than jellyfish.
This new waste stream presents an entirely new & harrowing side effect of the pandemic that must be prevented.
What is the solution?
The only way to reduce this waste from polluting our ecosystems further is by providing people with safe recycling & disposal solutions.
What are the benefits to your business?
Taking responsibility for your waste streams as a staff force is rapidly becoming the new standard, with pressure from the Government & consumers.
- Become a more environmentally conscious business.
- Offer a valuable service to staff, creating loyalty & respect.
- Offer a helpful service for customers, build loyalty, a good impression as a green business & encourage footfall.
- Excellent PR/Marketing/media opportunities – everyone is talking about recycling & sustainability; this is a great chance to be seen at the forefront.
