You’ve probably heard a lot about the problem of plastics in the press over the last 18 months, with images of plastic packaging in our seas and oceans, causing damage to animals and our environment.
With this in mind, we understand that you want more accountability about what happens to your waste after diligently sorting and recycling it at home – and we do too! However, the current linear system of kerbside recycling doesn’t let products get returned to their manufacturers. Instead, different councils and authorities have different ways of recycling plastics e.g. downcycling, reusing for fuel or exporting to other nations.
Polytag® aims to revolutionise recycling by creating a circular economy. Our objective is to develop a technology which allows branded plastics and aluminium products to be sent directly back to the manufacturer in a form they can use again, creating a continuous loop. This helps them to increasing recycling rates, reducing carbon emissions and makes sure your recycling is kept out of our natural environment.
By all working together we can change how our recycling is managed, and best of all, Polytag® enables brands to reward you for doing this, using our Circular Rewards™ platform.
