1. It Reduces Co2 Emissions
We use a vast amount of resources when we manufacture plastics. However, eco-friendly plastics are made using more efficient processes. As a result, we use fewer resources and this includes raw materials, electricity and water. Better still, less processing also helps to reduce the amount of Co2 emissions that enter the atmosphere.It is important that we do all we can to reduce emissions. Therefore, eco-plastics look as though they could play a role in helping to deal with climate change when replacing traditional plastic.
2. It is Less Harmful
To Humans and Animals There are many links between traditional plastic and health problems. It is also a problem for animals and marine life. Regular plastics contain a range of harmful chemicals such as BPA and PVC. These can lead to developmental problems in children after the leaching of chemicals from the plastic into our food or drinks. Meanwhile, eco-friendly plastics use natural ingredients and fewer to no chemicals at all. What this means is that it is less harmful to our environment, animals and humans.
3. Less is More
Recycling is Simple Eco-friendly plastics can be thinner than those made from regular plastic. Therefore, we need less of it. This means that the materials we use to make it can go further. What’s more, they are also extremely strong despite being thinner.As they are better for the environment due to the natural ingredients, we can recycle them more easily. This means that we can turn them into a range of other items after their initial application.
4. Reduced Risk to Animals
We all understand the problems that our animals and marine life face when it comes to plastic waste. Eco-friendly plastic does not pose as much of a risk to animals. However, it does become a risk when we incorrectly dispose of it and here lies another issue. Unfortunately, there is still going to be waste that finds its way into the environment. Despite this, as it breaks down a lot quicker, there is every chance it will disappear before the risks become apparent.
5. We Can Reduce Waste
Traditional plastic takes a long time to break down. Hundreds of years to be precise. Even when it does breakdown, it causes all kinds of problems. In contrast to this, eco-friendly plastic breaks down quickly and it can be composted. This helps to reduce the amount of waste that we have to manage at landfill and at home. The US is a prime example of diminishing landfill space. As a result, eco-friendly plastic that we can compost and dispose of in a different way can help to save space.
6. It Can Save Money
As we mass-produce traditional plastic, it is already relatively cheap. While eco-friendly plastic might not be produced quite yet on the same scale, it can help manufacturers to save money. They will need less packaging and this means that fewer materials are needed.What’s more, the manufacturing process is more efficient and that creates savings too. As production costs continue to decline, savings will be passed onto producers and eventually the consumer. It can also save money when it comes to managing waste. Currently, recycling and managing waste cost billions. The lesser costs of processing eco-friendly plastic is another benefit.
7. We Use Less Oil
We already use a vast amount of plastic. With this comes a need for oil and that poses serious problems. Drilling for oil causes environmental issues, it damages habitats and puts wildlife at risk. There is also the risk of oil spills and pollution while there is a carbon footprint to consider. Biodegradable plastics or eco-plastic reduce the amount of oil we need. Therefore, we can help to ease the pressure we are putting on our planet, we can also prevent disasters and save animals at the same time.
8. Eco-plastics can Lead to Enhanced Business Practices
Consumer power is a phenomenal thing and when consumers speak, brands listen. If consumers begin purchasing eco-friendly plastic items then brands will need to take notice. Consumers are now more environmentally savvy than ever before. They are more considerate with their purchases and they want to make better choices. Therefore, if consumers share their feelings about plastics and make alternative choices, businesses are going to have to react. As a result, they are more likely to make a change to their products and packaging.
