Every year, the Earth produces billions of tonnes of natural resources that at some point in the near future could be exhausted in a linear economy – in which every manufactured product ends up being discarded, falling outside of the production cycle.
This economic model, based on the intensive consumption of all kinds of raw materials, has a serious impact on the Environment. It destroys natural environment to obtain new resources, but also it generates huge waste that either ends up being incinerated, increasing greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere, or ends up in landfills or oceans around the world.
UNESCO designated 17th May as World Recycling Day. A milestone to draw attention to the waste of natural resources and to raise awareness of the importance of protecting the planet by recycling, taking advantage of the high value that the generated «waste» has within a circular economy model.
The recent pandemic situation and lockdown made people to be more aware of the consequences of human activity on the Environment. We are therefore facing a new era with increased environmental awareness and unimaginable opportunities to help make the Earth a more sustainable place.
BUT WHAT IS RECYCLING AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO RECYCLE?

The traditional consumer habits based on “use and throw away culture” is causing that humanity takes planet Earth to an extreme situation.
For this reason, it is becoming increasingly necessary to create more sustainable products, which means that we must to create products that can either be reusable, or that are manufactured with 100% recyclable and/or recycled 100% PCR materials.
Products, in essence, that reduce the amount of waste generated, decrease pollution and protect Nature by allowing to extend the useful life of goods created by humanity, including their packaging.
Fortunately, we can still take the appropriate measures to build a more sustainable future, but the truth is that time is running out and we cannot just talk about the situation, we have to take action.
For this reason, at QIUB Packaging we continue to work hard on the creation of sustainable products, such as the new ceramic grinder – a packaging solution for a reusable grinder that can be manufactured even with recycled 100% PCR materials, giving a new life to an already discarded bottle, turning it into a new reusable item and extending its useful life.
In short, we offer a large range of salt and spice grinders that reflects our commitment to protecting nature.

However, in order to enable citizens’ efforts to materialize in effective recycling, companies must contribute to this aim by creating widely recyclable products.
For this purpose, at QIUB Packaging we have invested many resources in recent years in R&D, to adapt our offer to the demands of society and nature. The result has been a range of grinders for spices and salts based on the 3R philosophy and providing added value to our clients: Continuar leyendo «Global Recycling Day : Join the 3R’s Challenge!»
