8 Recyclable Products Your Business Should Adopt Today

Eco-consciousness is essential for any modern business. Consumers care more about the environment than ever before. So, aside from your responsibilities to society and the planet, it’s important to adopt environmentally-friendly practices to satisfy modern consumer design.

Recycling is an important part of this, and this means making sure that the products your business uses are recyclable. Additionally, we could see some significant restrictions around unrecyclable products in the near future.

So, you might as well get used to recyclable products, especially if you own a business. So read on to learn all about eight recyclable products that your business should adopt immediately. 

Recyclable Plastic Packaging

Most businesses use plastic packaging for their products. However, in doing so they completely ignore the damage that plastic does to our environment. For example, it might take more than a decade for plastic to be decomposed. So, the negative environmental impact is enormous. With time, plastic releases toxic substances into the environment, which in turn also causes soil, air, and water pollution that badly affects human health. 

However, you can avoid these outcomes simply by adopting recyclable plastic packaging. Use High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) and Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) for packaging, and you won’t have to worry about the negative environmental impacts. Better still, these recyclable types of plastic actually cost less than regular plastic.

Recyclable Glass Insulation 

If you are looking for a cost-effective way to install an insulation system, recyclable glass insulation might be the best option. This is an eco-friendly idea that you can adopt and install in your own building.

Or, if you are a manufacturer of insulation sheets, make sure to choose recyclable glass as a raw material. Either way, you will be doing your bit to protect the environment. Glass insulation is made primarily with sand and artificial colours as well as other harmful chemicals are excluded, so it can safely be recycled.

Recyclable Cardboard

Modern businesses use cardboard for a range of candle packaging and shipping purposes. Imagine for a moment how many shipping boxes are exchanged on a daily basis across the world. All these shipping boxes are made from cardboard, a bulky material which can build up in landfill. 

China has been one of the most prominent collectors of global waste for some time now. They import 28 million tons of recycled cardboard every year. However, they are considering changing their policies regarding waste imports. So, it is not a bad idea at all to change the packaging your business uses to recyclable cardboard. This will be an eco-friendly and profitable decision for your business. 

Recyclable Paper

When you use regular paper, it will end up in the environment as biodegradable waste. Having said that, the market value for recyclable paper is increasing all the  time and using recyclable paper can reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Besides, recyclable paper has the same qualities as ordinary paper. So, you will enjoy a high-quality product that is also eco-friendly. 

Recycled Tires

Using recyclable tires comes with many benefits. First of all, it will help to reduce costs considerably. On the other hand, it reduces the need to use the earth’s precious fossil fuels to manufacture new tires, while minimizing waste. Usually, these recycled tires are safe and highly durable. If you are a manufacturer or distributor of tires, your business should be heading towards recyclable tires. 

Recycled Wood

Rather than destroying natural resources, using recyclable wood will not only save the environment, but it will also save your business a lot of time and money. It is an excellent way to save what is left of the world’s natural resources. Recycled wood makes an excellent choice for construction and furniture.

Recyclable Construction Materials

Speaking of construction, using recyclable construction materials is one of the best ways for any business to be eco-friendly. If you are building a new store, office, or site or renovating your existing premises, consider the eco-impact of the materials you use.

Eco-friendly materials include recyclable plastic, ducting, drainage pipes, scaffolding boards, among others. These products won’t harm the environment and can be recycled easily. 

Recyclable Plastic Bottles

These days, we see many soft drinks brands using plastic bottles. Even though using a plastic bottle is inexpensive and easy, these single-use plastics have a huge impact the environment. Therefore, if your business deals with such a manufacturing processes, using recyclable plastic bottles can greatly help the environment. Returnable plastic bottles can also significantly reduce manufacturing costs.

Wrap Up

All the products mentioned above are excellent solutions that will not only make your business more eco-friendly, but can also help you save time and money. For example, you can opt for recyclable packaging, bottles, and even construction materials with recyclable plastic. Being more eco-friendly can also help your business through attracting more customers that care about the environment.
