The plastic invasion

Today, poorly managed post-consumption waste (not reused, recycled, sent to controlled landfill or incinerated) amounts to hundreds of millions of tons per year.

It invades soils, rivers and oceans all over the world.

Nearly 150 million tons of plastic have collected in the oceans since the 1950s, and eight million more tons join it every year, the equivalent of one dump truck a minute.

Is cardboard even more dangerous than plastic?

13% of cardboard waste is buried in landfills.

A study showed that the ink printed on cardboard releases toxic chemical products.
But will we one day come up with good, environmentally friendly, non-polluting solutions that are not hazardous to our health? Following the ban on single-use plastics, a study showed that the cardboard packaging replacing it is in fact even more harmful to the human body.

80% of cardboard is recycled but it takes 60 to 400 litres of water to produce 1 kg of cardboard.
