SUSTAINABLE MOVEMENT CITYSENS
Every year 8 million tons of plastic are thrown into the oceans. The durability of plastic and its high consumption means that there is more and more plastic in the seas and oceans.
Only 18% of the plastic is recycled.
What is the solution? Promote recycling and circular economy.
OUR BET: THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY
The shelf and the vertical black garden are made of 100% recycled and recyclable polypropylene (PP).
Why do we use recycled polypropylene?
- That instead of consuming oil, a non-renewable source, we use recycled plastic.
- Recycled polypropylene is crushed, melted and allows us to create any shape, such as vertical, modular and customizable structures.
- Polypropylene is a very durable and safe material. It does not change color with light, it is waterproof and can be easily cleaned.
Virgin PP is used to make water and pressure resistant containers such as plastic cups, butter or ketchup containers, caps, hangers or straws. You will recognize it with the number 5 inside the recycling arrows.
Thanks to reuse we can extend the life of the material, reduce waste and energy consumption to manufacture new products. That is, we used PP that a year ago was the glass with which you drank a soda or a pot of butter from your breakfast.
JOIN THE CITYSENS SUSTAINABLE MOVEMENT
Due to the long service life of the material it is vital that you recycle the PP containers.
In CitySens we close the life cycle of the PP in order to reuse it and manufacture planters and vertical shelves to enjoy more plants at home or at work.
But alone we do nothing, we need to increase the percentage of plastic recycling.
What do you think of the #Sustainable Movement? We would love to know your opinion and share with you the best recycling practices.
