Plastic producers advertise recyclability
It also looked very green, at least in terms of color, among producers of plastic goods. On closer inspection, big innovations were missing. Those who had no news to offer in the area of sustainability focused primarily on the topic of recyclability. Sounds good, but we at flustix always point it out: You have to look at this thing holistically. A material may be recyclable, but if there is no infrastructure for it, no return options, then all this is of no use. Besides, the conditions in Europe are completely different: While we are making good progress here in Germany, other countries like Portugal are still at the very beginning. There, practically everything made of plastic ends up being incinerated. However, the quotas in Germany are too low, too. What are the reasons for this? Read about it here.
