Plastic pollution has reached vast proportions. By now, plastic residue and tiny plastic particles can be detected in food, water and the ground. The consequences for the environment are fatal – animals and plants are dying and our health is suffering. There is no doubt that we have to cut the use of plastic and rethink synthetic materials in general. At Flustix, we believe that avoiding plastics has to become a focus of corporate CSR-strategies.
Our vision is a world in which we effectively protect nature and use resources responsibly. Flustix is dedicated to plastic reduction and the avoidance of plastic waste. We support the responsible use of fossil fuels. It is our mission to establish a continuous dialogue with corporations to implement our vision and respond to consumer demand for less plastic packaging. We also provide information and education about the dangers of plastic overuse. We work in close collaboration with environmental organisations and actively support regulations within plastic production.
Our vision is the reasonable use of synthetics:
Avoiding instead of disposing!
Flustix as an organisation does not aim to demonise synthetics in general. We believe plastic is a valuable resource which should be used as little as possible. Synthetic materials are indispensable in the medical, transport and security sectors. That is why we have dedicated our work to reducing consumer plastics. To this end, we support environmental organisations, research and educational advertising. The topic is widely discussed in the media, politics and society in general. It is becoming increasingly challenging for corporations and the market to translate this new quest for sustainability into corporate governance. Consumers are more aware than ever, requesting plastic-free alternatives and greater transparency in the market.
Flustix offers a viable solution
Our product seal is more than just reliable. Our austere chemical testing process of items by the indepentant laboratory WESSLING provides waterproof credibility. Fact is: only 40% of plastic packaging is actually being recycled. Real recycling rates are continously stagnating because the majority of 60% of packaging is being recycled through so called “energy recovery” – which means: plastic is being burned instead of reused.We have to cut the production of single-use plastic and accomodate customer’s quests for less synthetics. We need to create a constructive exchange between corporations and consumers, which protects the environment and translates policies and regulations. This is what Flustix stands for.
