CO2 REDUCTION

BE A PART OF THE SUSTAINABLE FUTURE WITH OWP

The focus on plastic pollution, climate changes, and the environment has only grown bigger during the last years. Consumers set high demands and it is more important than ever for a company to have a sustainable strategy.

VIRGIN PLASTIC VS. OWP

Reduce up to 73% of your carbon dioxide emissions with OWP recycled plastic compared to virgin plastic

When moving into OWP you are not only cleaning oceans and rivers from plastic, you are actively minimizing the need for virgin plastic. By using recycled plastic (the raw material of OWP is conventional PCR material with the benefit that it removes plastic from ocean/rivers 1:1), you minimize the usage of fuel production and consumption, which normally account for the majority of carbon dioxide emissions when producing virgin plastic. This can result in at least a 50% reduction in carbon dioxide emissions, and as the highest 73% less carbon dioxide emission when using recycled plastic instead of virgin.

ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFIT

When using OWP compared to virgin materials massive CO2 savings are realized

Why is it important to use OWP?

 

Besides reducing the carbon footprint, recycled plastic has other great benefits as well.

Protect our

eco-system and animal life

PCR can help protect our eco-system as it reduces the need to harvest from the Earth. When we recycle plastic and other materials, we help prevent it from entering into the ocean and landfills. The less plastic that enters our oceans and landfills, the more animals will be saved and stay unharmed. 3

Energy

Recycled plastic requires a lot less energy under production than virgin plastic, which can result in less CO2 emissions. A study show that using a ton of PET plastic containers made of recycled plastic saves around 7.000 kilowatt-hours.1

Consumers

seek sustainable solutions

Research shows that consumers seek sustainable packagaing and goods, but that majority feel that brands makes it harder for them to choose sustainable goods.4 Help them make the choice easier with the OWP-concept, and help us remove plastic from the ocean and get your packaging produced in PCR.
