Recycled plastic - a plastic with a past and a future
Plastic is a valuable material since it is made from one of our most valuable resources: oil. Therefore, recycling of plastics helps to conserve this raw material and to reduce the piles of waste. Every day, we buy and use products which have been manufactured from recycled plastics: What had been a yoghurt cup yesterday may very well be a practical carrier bag or a strong garbage bag today.
