Earth2Earth Degradable Sack 38"x43" Cream For Sustainable Waste Disposal Practices
The design of this degradable sack is structured to enable you to effectively dispose the garbage generated on the premises, without posing a risk to the environment. Firstly, you want to be sure that it delivers on its functionality. After all, issues like a bag tearing due to having a weak material that doesn’t support the weight of the trash held in it can be messy. The Earth2Earth Degradable Sack 38"x43" Cream has been developed with high-performance resins that give it the strength needed for safe and secure waste disposal. These resins adhere to EU industry standards. Added to this is the convenient size of the degradable sack, you can use this unit for handling the daily waste that is produced in your home or business premises. As the frequency of changing the degradable sacks is reduced, it means that you get to make savings in the costs that are incurred in the establishment’s waste disposal program.
When exposed to the conditions at the waste handling facilities, from mechanical stress to the heat involved, the Earth2Earth Degradable Sack 38"x43" Cream begins breaking down. The stretching and tearing, all through to UV radiation from the sun can kickstart the process, which will result in a breakdown of the molecular structure of the material. The fragmentation continues, and microorganisms come on board to feed on the fragments being formed- resulting in biodegradation. There won’t be any acidic or alkaline substances formed, or toxins and contaminants produced during the degradation. The rapid degradation also enables the waste itself to be exposed to the heat and elements much sooner, which in turn speeds up their own decay.
Plastic, the polluter of land and sea
The most widely used form of packaging poses the greatest threat to the environment. Plastics, with their extremely slow rate of degradation, can persist in the environment for long- in fact, hundreds of years, going up to a millennium. It’s not a surprise that most of the plastic products that have been disposed of in landfills are still there today, retaining their structure. Since more plastics are used on a daily basis, the landfills keep building up, posing different risks to the environment. For starters, there is the methane problem. Landfills are some of the largest direct human contributors to methane, a greenhouse gas that traps over 2 dozen times more heat than carbon dioxide. The methane is produced when the organic matter that is in the landfills gets biodegraded anaerobically by bacteria. Plastic films are also light, which allows them to be carried off by wind to far-out areas, becoming a menace along the way. From blocked drainage systems to livestock feeding on the plastics and getting chocked- there is increased emphasis on the need to reduce the amount of plastics that are getting to the environment.
The amount of plastics in the oceans is increasing at an alarming rate. In fact, it is estimated that by 2050, the plastics in the ocean will have outweighed fish. Even birds consume the plastics, mistaking them for food. It is estimated that about 90% of seabirds particularly have ingested some form of plastic. The Great Pacific Garbage Patch continues to increase in size, with the majority of it being plastics. The need to shift to eco-friendly packaging material cannot be overemphasised. This has seen more and more people, from NGOs, national governments and local authorities, religious bodies and social clubs, to individual citizens making policy and personal changes to incorporate sustainable practices in their day to day activities. The goal is to reverse the damage meted out onto Mother Nature, for our sake and future generations. Part of this is with the garbage disposal process, which is one of the reasons why products such as the Earth2Earth Degradable Sack 38"x43" Cream are increasingly becoming popular.
With this unit, you also get to take part in the global push for sustainable practices. The design and logo of the Earth2Earth Degradable Sack 38"x43" is particularly beneficial in increasing awareness about environmental safety. What’s more, for the businesses, you get to create a positive impression for your brand, one that especially appeals to the growing range of consumers that pay close attention to the corporate social responsibility of a business, and the impact that its operations have on the environment.
