One million plastic bags are used every minute throughout the year, globally1. Many of them end up in our nature and stay there. A large proportion of the plastics are items with a short lifetime. On average, each plastic bag has a “working life” of just 15 minutes2. When waste management fails, these bags, along with other forms of plastic packaging, end up in our environment and in most cases that is where they will remain. By using biodegradable and certified plastics they will not stay there forever. To encourage a more responsible use and disposal of plastics, Perstorp has initiated a campaign called “Time to act” where they are launching “The Challenge”, a quiz with the aim to spread knowledge. For each person joining, Perstorp will make a donation to preserve our planet. The initiative is in line with Perstorp’s focus on sustainability and its aim to offer sustainable solutions. The motto is: No-one can do everything but everyone can do something!
