In Novapet we trully believe that PET production industry sustainability goes through concrete actions in which we can all contribute step by step. And it is, in this aspect, where phase 1 of a very special project for us, will be developed during this year 2020.
You will remember that last 2019 we participated at the 11th edition of the Ultra Trail Guara Somontano mountain race, making a selective PET collection, right? Well, in this case, that was a pilot test, and now, are going to transfer it to our production plants in Barbastro.
As we have been informing you, PET has a high value as a resource and, in addition, it is a scarce material when we think about its recovery for its subsequent recycling and incorporation into the production chain, therefore, the need of producers to stock up with this precious material is high.
We, within the battery of projects that this year we plan to undertake, undoubtedly, one of the most special because of its nature of both social, internal and external awareness within our organization, as for collaborative projects of different nature, is the selective PET collection.
Therefore, since this last Tuesday, January 22, there are 18 specific containers for PET collection that have been installed in several strategic points of our plants: offices, dining rooms, coffee rooms, waypoints, workshops, and an endless number of industrial spaces.
We hope to have the involvement of all staff, since its success is guaranteed if we all do our part in the best possible way.
We leave you below some pictures of the different places where these containers have been implanted. Do not forget to follow the instructions indicated on the container itself ;-)
We want you to be part of the change, and that change implies, not only the awareness that PET is the best of all plastics, but, separating PET, we are collaborating to create a sustainable circular economy and from Novapet we want to thank in advance everyone’s collaboration.
