#Henkel and #Plastic Bank work hard for a circular economy
Updated: Aug 2, 2019
This eliminates the process of extracting basic materials from the Earth.
Plastic Bank provides the #recycled inputs that Henkel needs for the packaging of its products.
All this comes from #recycled plastic, which no longer reaches the seas.
This is why companies like Henkel deserve to be recognized by Responsible Green Living and should be mentioned for their work to change the world, make it better for our children and offer products for the benefit of the population.
"Our customers and consumers can buy our products with full confidence that we obtain our raw and direct materials according to the highest standards of environmental and social responsibility. While the world may seem to be getting smaller, the opportunities to promote sustainable practices along the value chain are growing all the time, and we are committed to exploring these opportunities." https://www.henkel.com/sustainability/responsible-sourcing
Plastic packaging plays a paradoxical role in people's modern lives.
Something unimportant, like a plastic package, is destroying life on the planet.
Henkel knows this very well, because it depends on a plastic package whether your food or product arrives in the right condition at your home.
Packaging is the villain of history when it comes to talking about sustainability and care for the environment, because it is the first pollutant when the consumer becomes an unthinking actor in the problem. The underlying problem is not the packaging, but the consumer, ourselves.
That is why it is important to focus advertising campaigns to raise public awareness and reduce consumption.
This is why companies like Henkel have given way to the circular economy to use materials for use "over and over again".
This idea is at the heart of the circular economy model: A way of thinking that seeks to gather materials after they have been used and process them so they can be reused or recycled over and over again. This eliminates waste and reduces the environmental impact of packaging - as long as strong recycling and waste management systems are in place.
Henkel is a company aware of the carbon footprint it leaves behind on the planet. That's why the company is committed to integrating more recycled PET plastic into its value chain: because it reduces its carbon footprint by up to 80%.
Hence, the decision was made to partner with companies such as Plastic bank, because they share a similar vision and social and environmental responsibility with the planet.
Another important thing to mention is that Henkel has committed to using "natural or biodegradable opacifiers" for consumer products by 2020 and will stop using micropearls in its beauty and laundry line.
They understand very well that the impact of plastic consumption is not only on packaging, but also on those #microplastics scattered in the environment, which we even breathe.
Responsible Green Living believes in these initiatives on the part of large companies, because they have the ability to offer their public sustainable green products.
"In this context, we became the first global fast-moving consumer goods company to team up with the Plastic Bank in 2017.
It is important to be aware that there are companies that are making enormous efforts to get their products as good as possible to your home, without doing more damage to the planet.
On the other hand, we must all open our eyes and do our part and be conscious consumers of the step we leave in the world with our own carbon footprint.
