Reusable Plastic Containers Eliminate Waste

Reusable Plastic Containers Eliminate Waste

Corrugated boxes are commonly used by many companies for storage of product, but they present a number of issues:

  • Different sizes of boxes awkwardly fill shelves and waste valuable space.
  • They degrade when they come in contact with oils and moisture.
  • Because of their one-time or limited use, it is necessary to replace and dispose of them often.

According to a study by the Reusable Packaging Association, Reusable Plastic Containers (RPC’s):

  • Require 39% less total energy.
  • Produce 95% less total solid waste.
  • Generate 29% less total greenhouse gas emissions.

When plastic bins are reused multiple times, it results in lower environmental burdens than when single-trip corrugated boxes are used.

Once the RPC’s service life is ended, they are recycled, providing an “eco-friendly” alternative to corrugated boxes and will increase your company’s sustainability efforts.
