Plastic pollution has hit a catastrophic high, with only a staggeringly low 15% making it to recycling facilities. Blue Planet did an amazing job to spotlight the challenges surrounding single use plastics, however this is the wrong end of the iceberg, with durable plastic goods making up 61%3 of the market.
With limited focus and solutions for the end of life of durable plastic goods, industries such as the automotive, fashion and interior design are responsible for generating over 161 million tonnes of landfill waste each year.
From buttons to bookcases, spectacles to school chairs and car doors to countertops, there’s a huge range of durable items that need to be brought into a circular economy through the use of sustainable alternatives to petroleum plastics, offering multiple end of life scenarios.
Our vision at Chip[s] Board ltd is to produce true circular economy bioplastics, using abundant waste as a feed source.
