How can we take plastics out of the ocean?

Literally you will find more plastic than marine animals in terms of weight in the world’s oceans by 2050, the World Economic Forum warned recently.

Plastic has become one of the world’s most popular matermaxresdefaultials, combining amazing functionality and very low production costs. Its use has increased 20-fold in the past 50 years and is expected to double again in the next 20 years.

Almost everybody in the world comes into contact with it — over a quarter of all plastic is used for packaging, the most popular use of the material.

But only 14% of plastic packaging is collected for recycling.

So how do we fix this? People all over the world are gathering to clean up beaches, while new technologies to remove plastics from the ocean are currently being developed. As the demand for plastics is set to double in the next two decades, we need to look at the root cause not just the symptoms, if we really want to solve the problem. To free our ocean from plastics, we have to fundamentally rethink the way we make, use and reuse plastics, so that they do not become waste in the first place.

To create a circular economy for plastics  – we need innovations in the form of better materials, clever product designs, and new, circular business models.

The Circular Materials  economy may make the ways to make all plastic packaging recyclable or composted.

Loyalk9 Chennai Pet food Packed in Biodegradable / Compostable packaging.

Consumers are paying close attention to where their pets’ food comes from—and what it’s packaged in. The pet food packaging segment is stepping up to meet the industry’s needs.

The idea of sustainability has permeated nearly every facet of business. The larger issues of climate change and concern for the environment have resulted in consumers looking more carefully than ever at their impact on the Earth, including what they buy, how they buy it and who they buy it from. The pet food industry is certainly not immune to the pressures of passing the sustainability test, and as manufacturers do their best to meet customer expectations, packaging companies are focusing on what they can do, both to help manufacturers meet their goals and to satisfy consumers with the results of their own products.

LoyalK9 manufactures holistic dog food. LoyalK9 is a Species Appropriate Diet for Dogs (SAD-D) made of hygienic ingredients (moist meat, bones, organs of farm animals, fresh vegetables and essential oils) graded for human consumption.

Coca-Cola Produces World’s First 100% Plant-Based PET Bottle

Coca-Cola has produced the world’s first PET plastic bottle made entirely from plant materials.

PlantBottle packaging is Coke’s plant-based alternative to packaging traditionally made from fossil fuels and other non-renewable materials. PlantBottle packaging uses patented technology that converts natural sugars found in plants into the ingredients for making PET plastic bottles. The packaging looks, functions and recycles like traditional PET.

PlantBottle packaging can be used for a variety of packaging sizes and across water, sparkling, juice and tea beverage brands. Today, the company uses sugarcane and waste from the sugarcane manufacturing process to create PlantBottle packaging.

Since the 2009 PlantBottle launch, Coke has distributed more than 35 billion bottles in nearly 40 countries using its current version of PlantBottle packaging, made from up to 30 percent plant-based materials. The company estimates the use of PlantBottle packaging since launch has helped save the equivalent annual emissions of more than 315,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide.

OVER 1 ACRE OF RAINFOREST ARE DEFORESTED EVERY SECOND

OVER 1 ACRE OF RAINFOREST ARE DEFORESTED EVERY SECOND

We need our world’s forest. They are vital sources of oxygen. They moderate our climates, prevent floods, and are our best defense against soil erosion. Forests recycle and purify our water. They are home to millions of plants and animals. We are losing’s Earth’s greatest biological treasures; Rainforests those once covered 14% of the earth’s land surface; now they cover a mere 6%. It took millions of years to turn rainforests into an incredibly beautiful and complex environments they are today; It has taken only a century of human intervention to destroy what nature designed to last forever.

What Can We Do?

We can reuse paper & wood products and use recycled paper whenever possible. We can support organizations involved in rainforest conservation.  A cultural shift towards a plant-based diet would be substantial step toward saving our remaining forests. It takes far less agricultural land to produce a plant-based diet. Since forests absorb carbon dioxide and produce oxygen, the movement towards a plant based diet would provide our children with more plentiful oxygen to breathe an atmosphere with fewer greenhouse gases, and a more stable climate.

Can We Turn Things Around? Perhaps. Perhaps Not

But, there is still time to turn things around if we act now it may dramatically perk up God’s wondrous creation that we care about and love. It would be like as if you were planting and tending a tree, helping to create a greener and healthier future for all generations to come.

Ecological Footprint

ACT AS IF WHAT YOU” DO MAKES A DIFFERENCE.

Your Ecological Footprint approximates the area of land, air and ocean required to support your consumption of foods, goods, services, housing & energy  and assimilate your waste. Ever wondered how much “Ecolife” your lifestyle requires? IT’s easy to disregard that the choices we make every day can change how much natural resources we use. What you ear, how your family travels and even the clothes you wear all make a difference. How big is your ecological foot print?

* How many times you have been told to turn off the TV when you’re not watching it?

* Have you reminded anyone to recycle paper or cardboard?

* In a world with billions of people, does it really matter if you leave the water ON when you brush your teeth? Even if it doesn’t feel like it, little things do add up.

 REDUCE YOUR CARBON FOOT PRINT.

We know that protecting the environment is importanat; and there anre many simple wayts to reduce your impact on the Earth like: Using cleaner transport, adding energy saving features to your home, adopting energy saving habits, reducing your food foot print, adopting water saving habits, reducing your housing footprint and reducing your goods and service gootpirnt.

But don’t stop there. Amplify your impact by encouraging others to follow your lead.

NOW, ACT AS IF WHAT YOU DO MAKES A DIFFERENCE”…..BECAUSE IT DOES”

PLA Lined Paper Cups

PLA Paper Cups

Extensive changes in the manufacturing of paper and plastic have occurred over the past few decades. EPA figures indicate that paper manufacturing increased more than 300 percent from 1960 to 2013. The data for plastics present an even more startling contrast, with plastic generation increasing more than 7,000 percent during the same time period. More than 1 million tons of the paper generated in 2013 consisted of paper cups and plates, virtually all of which were discarded. More than 800,000 tons of plastic cups and plates were generated that same year, with most ending up in the trash.

PE Coating on paper is not compatible with end of life operations. The paper biodegrades leaving fine line PE to pose huge damage to Life on Earth. Replacing the PE with bio based and fully biodegradable PLA coatings offer the value proposition of a reduced material carbon footprint.

Our Cups offer safe water proofing, grease resistance and can be used for Hot Applications also.
