World Environment Day

The food we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink and the climate that makes our planet habitable all come from nature. For instance, each year, marine plants produce more than a half of our atmosphere`s oxygen, and a mature tree cleans our air, absorbing 22 kilos of carbon dioxide, releasing oxygen in exchange. Despite all the benefits that our nature gives us, we still mistreat it. That is why we need to work on that. That is why we need this World Environment Day. World Environment Day is the most renowned day for environmental action. Since 1974, it has been celebrated every year on 5 June: engaging governments, businesses, famous people, and citizens to focus their efforts on a pressing environmental issue.

World Environment Day is the most renowned day for environmental action. Since 1974, it has been celebrated every year on 5 June: engaging governments, businesses, famous people, and citizens to focus their efforts on a pressing environmental issue.

In 2020, the theme is biodiversity – a concern that is both urgent and existential. Recent events, from bushfires in Brazil, the United States, and Australia to locust infestations across East Africa – and now, a global disease pandemic – demonstrate the interdependence of humans and the webs of life, in which they exist.

Lordos Plastics has undoubtedly proven that with responsibility and guidance it fully respects the environment and follows all the necessary methods of its support and rescue. Although we are a company that produces plastic products, this is done with absolute respect for the environment. What should be noted is that plastic is a material that has been demonized in relation to its effect on nature.

Plastic is an extremely useful material. It is economical, durable, and fully recyclable. That is why its use is multiple and important for households, industries, and society. We can produce from chairs and baskets to pipes and fittings. Even art.

The misuse of plastic and plastic bags is the biggest problem we face nowadays, and it is the duty of all of us to make proper and responsible use. It all starts from education. We must learn to do proper recycling and make it a part of our lifestyle. Let` s start the "green education" from primary school to teach our children how to manage properly the garbage - recyclable and non-recyclable. Lordos Plastics has taken up a number of initiatives in our schools in Cyprus, to teach our future citizens on how to become an environmentally responsible person. Only then will we be able to effectively protect the environment.

Plastic itself does not destroy nature, as its use ensures the rescue of thousands of trees and can be reused many times. The problem is the human recklessness that endangers the planet. So, we all need to pay attention and listen to nature. Lordos Plastics is committed to doing its part to protect everything that we hold dear.
