I am a leading plastic materials expert. You are being given incorrect advice. Calcium carbonate-filled PE can be recycled multiple times with no loss in properties. Check phantomplastlcs.com 2 if you want hard data on plastics and the environment rather than false rumors.
A suggestion to start assessing future product development: Green, sustainable, environmentally sound, net-zero energy, save energy, carbon-neutral, clean, etc. are words with good feelings and little real focus. Global warming is caused by so many of our actions, and all are energy use and misuse, felt good or bad: We cannot save energy, only use it! So there is no one numerical reference for saving. Here is an idea that was accepted as a sustainability idea for politicians:
Isn't one (1) the smallest common denominator for sustainability?
1. One = 1 = 1 person. If no longer there, sustainability will end.
2. Or 1000 kWh of raw energy (food) per person per year
3. Or 1000 m2 of agricultural land
4. All of these values can vary quite "greatly"
5. Compare that 1000 with the 22,000 kWh raw energy per person per year (World Bank, 2014).
Isn't 1000 kWh the reference for sustainability?
Shouldn't we urgently determine how often 1000 kWh per person can be used without "changing" our climate?
Isn't that duty of the government?
Personal anecdote related to this subject:
I’ve just put in a couple of hours of web search and phone calls to understand specifically what to put and not to put into my blue recycling waste bin in Fulton County. After glass bottles and beverage aluminum cans it gets quite ambiguous and confusing very quickly.
Maybe it’s just me. But if I’m like the average person, and Fulton is like the average county, there appears to be a large upside opportunity in providing homes with much clearer instructions. Which would lead to a more valuable and less contaminated mix of blue bin contents. Which could bring by significant productivity gains along the recycling value chain, I suppose.
To add onto the biodegradable packaging, a supermarket in Thailand started using banana leaves for their packaging. In this way, grocery shopping becomes much less dependent on plastics between packaging and transportation of the goods. Maybe a transition into natural items would be a beneficial idea to run with as far as packaging of food and other items.
