“We cannot just recycle our way out of the plastic pollution crisis.”
Single-Use Plastics Must Become a Thing of the Past
The production and use of plastic packaging has grown dramatically in the last decade and is set to rise by another 40% in the coming 10 years. This massive increase in production and use, combined with the inability for recycling markets to keep pace with production, has led to an unprecedented amount of plastic waste clogging our landfills and finding it’s way into the natural environment around us.
Of course this is exacerbated by the fact that most plastics take exponentially longer than natural materials to decompose and even when they do, they break down into micro-plastic particles that further disrupt the ecologies into which they overflow.
We have the opportunity to make choices that significantly reduce or eliminate plastic packaging for our products. Rooterra Organics adheres to a strict commitment to strive for a zero-waste future, to ensure the future of the environments that sustain us, and the health of our customers and our planet.
