Sustainability and eco-friendly practices are more important than ever before, which is why Gordian Strapping are exploring a not-for-profit project aimed at reducing plastic waste in landfills.
As a provider of polypropylene and polyester strapping, Gordian feel its important to combat the plastic waste. Their polypropylene strap is made from 30% recycled material content and is fully recyclable, and the polyester strap is made from 100% recycled material.
Gordian are now attempting to decrease the amount of used strapping that makes its way to landfills by exploring the ‘Plastic Strap Recovery Scheme’. The aim is to create a ‘closed-loop system’, whereby the finished strap is chopped into smaller pieces by a StrapChopper and collected from the end-user. The scheme will reduce carbon emissions, decrease the raw material cost for customers by increasing the availability and allow Gordian’s customers to enhance their eco-credentials.
It’s a project that that Gordian still currently investigating and they’re hoping to roll it out across a range of their major customers in 2023.
