As a beauty-product consumer, you probably want to do your part to help the environment. You’ve noticed that many of your favorite brands have been stepping up their sustainability game, and that’s awesome! But what about all those products you’re buying? Are they recyclable? How will they be recycled once they hit the bin? And how much do sustainable materials cost brands in terms of production and packaging waste?
What does sustainable plastic mean?
It means that the plastic packaging is made from recycled or renewable resources. Recycled plastic is a type of plastic that has been used, then discarded and collected from landfills. It’s then melted down and reused to make new products. Recycling helps reduce the amount of waste going into landfills and oceans, which helps the environment by preventing pollution and conserving natural resources.
A material is considered sustainable when in environmental terms, it comes from renewable, abundant and local sources, consumes little energy and is non-polluting during its life cycle. These materials can be found anywhere in nature and they’re all easily renewable resources!
What happens to the packaging once you put it in the recycling bin?
All of the materials used in FACA to manufacture a package are recyclable and can be recycled again. Some can even be recycled more than once, depending on their composition. Once all of these materials reach their final destination, they’re separated from one another and reused for other products or materials like new plastic bottle caps or carpet fiber.
After being sorted into different categories for processing , most recyclables go through a single-stream system where all types of material are collected together into large bins for collection by the local waste management service provider. From there, automated sorting equipment sorts out the types of material before it’s sent off along its circuitous route back through manufacturing processes until it reaches its final destination: A new product that may look very similar but is made from 100% recycled material!
