HOW TO GET A 50% REDUCTION IN OUR CO2 EMISSIONS? IT’S SIMPLE: RECYCLING.

At Shopping Basket we are committed with the environment, and we are aware of our impact on nature. That’s why we want to present you this new initiative that we undertake to benefit the world in which we live and therefore all of us.


DID YOU KNOW THAT WE GENERATE 3.5 KG OF CO2 FOR EVERY KILO OF VIRGIN PLASTIC PRODUCED?

However, the use of recycled plastic allows us to reduce CO2 emissions by 48.5%, thus reducing our carbon footprint and our impact on the environment.

Thinking about the future of our planet, we have decided to change all the black plastic we use for recycled plastic. This small gesture will make us stop emitting tons of CO2 every year.

Nevertheless, this change requires an effort from all of us.


ESTHETIC OF NEW STANDARD RECYCLED BLACK COLOR

Recycled plastic has multiple sources, and it is impossible to achieve a pure black color. The result is a very similar color with small variations and even small specks due to the mixing of plastics. This small aesthetic change is the only effort that we ask you.

MECHANICAL PROPERTIES

Our products will continue exactly as always, resistant, durable and innovative.

BASKETS MADE WITH VIRGIN PP

The possibility of having products in black color made of virgin material is still an option. However, it will no longer be a standard product and therefore will have the production conditions of a special color.

Plastic has a very long life cycle, so it is perfect to be seen as raw material for new uses after being recycled.
Post-consumer waste is generated once it has finished its use phase in the life cycle. Therefore, it is all waste that ends up in the yellow recycling container.

We work with an external company with the capacity to produce more than 20,000 tons of post-consumer recycled polypropylene per year to avoid stock breakage.

 

OUR POST-CONSUMER RECYCLED SHOPPING BASKETS

Our recycled PP contains at least 95% post-consumer recycled material from plastic containers taken from the streets that have previously been classified and separated.
The recycled PP is presented in PANTONE 424C gray color for all our baskets. They are available in three other colors:

QUALITY GUARANTEE

The recycling process and associated management systems for plastic waste have been verified by an accredited auditor of EuCertPlast.

¿WHAT IS EUCERPLAST?

EuCertPlast is a European certification created to recognize those recyclers of post-consumer plastics that meet and work under very demanding quality levels.

ENVIRONMENTAL FOOTPRINT

The Environmental Footprint evaluates, calculates and sometimes weights the main potential environmental impacts of a product based on a Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) following the international ISO standards.

graph-plastic-emission

In the integrated and automated production process, previously classified post-consumer packaging is transformed into recycled PE and PP resins that use extensive preparation, cleaning (including hot wash reactors), and extrusion/composition process.


These values have been calculated according to ISO 14040/14044 considering that the comparison is between the QCP consumption data and the industry average in Europe, it only refers to the raw materials used to produce the resins, excluding use and end of life phase. This statement applies to recycled products as such and does not cover any additives, pigments, etc., added.


More than 8,000,000 tons of plastic end up in the oceans every year.

Only 12% of the plastic is recycled

AN ETERNITY IN THE SEA

Plastics present in the sea take between 50 and 500 years to decompose.
Degradation is slower due to low exposure to sunlight. Waves break these plastics into smaller pieces that take even longer to degrade.

POLLUTED MARINE FAUNA

Many fish die entangled in the waste and others die after ingestion. In addition, the small pieces that roam the sea are ingested by fishes that often end up in our dishes.


We know that resources are very valuable and limited. With the Shopping Basket Recycling – ZERO WASTERecycled from the street product line we provide a revolutionary new circular economy solution.
