Are there plastics friendly to the environment?

In 2019, 360 million tons of plastics were produced globally. All over the world, scientists and consumers are focusing on how to reduce the use of single-use plastics and the impact of plastics on the environment.

First of all, we have to note that plastics are being used in every sector from the start of the 20th century and they have improved our everyday lives, our health and safety to a huge degree.

There are many plastics, home and industrial and the biggest priority for the scientific community is how we will be able to reduce the use of single-use plastics and also on what happens after their use. The development and use of “responsible” plastics is required from institutions such as the European Commission. Also, the French government has set a target of using 100% recyclable plastics until 2025. The environmental sensitivity of the general public and the strictness of the new regulations in place, opens a new era in which plastics can play the very positive role it has so far in our everyday lives and at the same time protect the environment and our planet.

At Lordos Plastics, we were the first in Cyprus to develop and produce Ecobags by Lordos Plastics, the first waste bags made by at least 80% recycled materials, that reduce heavily the environmental impact but also with their strength and quality are improving the life of the consumer. Ecobags were certified with the Blue Angel logo, the top global environmental certification in the world for products and services friendly to the environment for over 40 years. Because for everyone at Lordos United Plastics, the new era is already here.
