It’s no secret that as a species we are having transformative impacts on our environment. Human-induced climate acceleration is affecting animals and the planet alike, and we all need to make personal efforts to be more considerate in the products and items that we use.
A Look at Some of the Most Amazing Recycled Products Out There
Recycling is one of the most important things that we can all do to help. The average aluminium can takes 80 years to decompose, a glass bottle takes 500 years, plastic bottles can take 1,000 years and Styrofoam never disintegrates. Using recyclable alternatives is super important and thankfully there are more items out there than ever before.
Here are some of the most interesting recycled products that are helping customers to make a difference and reduce their impact on the environment.
Single-use plastic fruit and vegetable bags are terrible for the environment. Millions are used around the world each day and they very end up being recycled in the appropriate way. This is because most recycling facilities stand to lose money if they recycle these items.
They’re also a poor option for fruit and vegetables given that they can lead to sweating which speeds up the decomposition process of your produce. Entirely sustainable produce bags have emerged as a superior alternative in recent years and we are very excited by the ones that we offer – as are our customers!
These bags are made from recycled plastic drink bottles so they are lightweight but very strong. In fact, each one can carry up to two kilos and the mesh bag keeps the products fresh while allowing shop assistants to see into the bag at a glance. They are also 100% vegan friendly so people can love animals while helping out the environment too!
Our backpacks are once again constructed from recycled plastic bottles. This is an engineering technique that turns the problem themselves into a part of the solution.
Our bags are very tough, incredibly lightweight, very comfortable to carry and scrunch down into an attached carry pouch so you can always have it On Ya. They also look great and don’t sacrifice on anything in terms of design. With 14 litres of room and a variety of pockets these backpacks offer all of the advantages of traditional backpacks without any of the downsides that affect our environment.
Do you drink two litres of water each day? That’s what nutritionists recommend to keep our bodies in the best possible condition. This is a lot of water and it can be expensive and difficult to keep in line with this recommendation. It also means that a person goes through a lot of plastic.
Reusable drink bottles are the perfect solution to all of these problems. Reliable and reusable, they make it easy to carry water at all times while cutting down on the use of plastics. These bottles are made from food grade 304 stainless steel to make sure they last for as long as possible and never impact the taste of water.
