Every year – WWF reports – about 8 million tons of plastic waste end up in the oceans and, if serious and tangible measures are not taken, by 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the seas.
In the meanwhile, in the Mediterranean, what is going on?
According to the data behind the #stopplasticpollution petition, at least 570 thousand tons of plastic end up in the Mediterranean waters every year.
It is difficult to display such an amount, right?
We are talking about the equivalent of 33,800 plastic bottles thrown overboard every minute.
This is just one of the reasons why, within the CHANGE project, Terratinta Group has already started the creation of its PLASTIC FREE philosophy for some time now.
The first step towards eliminating plastic waste involved removing all plastic containers from vending machines and coffee dispensers.
At the same time – for our customers and suppliers – we have chosen glasses and cups totally made of compostable material, sanctioning the complete abandonment of plastic by the company.
For internal use we have instead chosen to join the non-production of waste, guaranteeing the availability of washable tableware, customized steel bottles and completely free purified water both natural and sparkling.
The future of Terratinta Group? It’s green and not plastic!
