Plastics have been the subject of a lot of negative media coverage with growing evidence of pollution in our oceans and river systems. Plastics, as a versatile range of materials which have the possibility to adapt to suit different applications at low unit cost, have perhaps been a victim of their own success. The range of end applications is vast from toothbrushes to aircraft parts.

It is an important carrier of many of the products we sell due to its low cost and functionality. If recycled properly, plastics can remain an important part of our lives.
