Modern life needs urgent efficient recycling of polystyrene products

A lot of modern consumers are adapted to the plastic packages. But these relatively modern wrappings perhaps annoy and worry people sometimes because they cause environment pollution, and many people could remember a time when they managed without plastic products.
People miss the old milk bottles which were made of glass and easily recyclable. People also miss the brown paper bags for loose fruit and vegetables. We used to drain our fried fish and chips on the paper bags. People used tea leaves and teapots instead of teabags. This isn’t the pointless nostalgia. It indicates that people can live without excessive plastic wrappings. Nowadays, online shop owners all like Russian doll style packaging with too much plastic.

 


Now instead of those old wrappings, it’s plastic everywhere. Loose apples and pears are on the moulded polystyrene bed, covered in hard plastic shells. And fast food shops are so popular that people hardly make their own chips at home. Fried chips are sold in the plastic bags.
Many people begin to think about packaging and recycling because the terrifying situation of polystyrene waste. According to the record, the types of plastic waste in one square meter on each side of the road are mainly plastic drink bottles, plastic bags and polystyrene food containers.
Plastic waste can never be recycled completely. After the incomplete recycling, it becomes inferior in quality. Many plastic waste were buried or burned in the landfills.
In the oceans, plastic breaks down into molecules, which behaves like sponges and sop up other toxins. These plastic waste could be eaten by the fishes and then get into people’s food chain and poison us. All the plastic ever made is still here, in one form or another. People can’t completely abandoned the use of plastic products. But we can recycle them effectively.
People should accept the adoption of sustainable materials such as glass and papers. By relying on a full evaluation of a material’s life cycle, sustainable materials can help people make more informed choices that conserve resources and reduce overall environmental impacts.

 


In addition, many companies which have the recycling technology and machines are contributing to the efficient recycling methods. INTCO is a professional company in dealing with waste plastic such as EPS, XPS and PSP. The company also produces polystyrene recycling machines include compactors and melting machines. INTCO provides people the reasonable price, alone with the advanced technology and service of polystyrene recycling.
