Plasto The Earth Steward
Helping you understand the Circularity of our Plastic Resources

Plasto is the Earth Steward for Polymers


Plastic and polymers often get a bad reputation, but they are valuable resources that we need to manage wisely. Once oil and gas are extracted from the ground, they cannot be returned. Given that these resources are finite and will eventually run out, it’s crucial to make the most of them. We also want to avoid producing plastic from new, virgin oil. Therefore, it is essential to keep plastic in circulation for as long as possible.

Plastic has the advantage of being lightweight, making it easier and more efficient to transport. Moreover, recycling plastic is straightforward and requires minimal energy and water, making it an environmentally friendly option. By focusing on recycling and reusing plastic, we can conserve resources and reduce our reliance on new materials.
