Environment


As plastics continue to come under the spotlight for their contribution to the global waste crisis, Dimple Paper’sTM biggest contribution is an environmental one.

http://www.dimplepaper.co.za/images/uploads/1369150667_plastic_waste.jpgIn 2011, only 250,000 tonnes of the 1.3 million tonnes of plastic manufactured in South Africa were recycled – and most of that was post-consumer, not production-level, waste. The bottom line is that despite efforts to educate the public, plastics recycling is only scratching the surface of the problem. Not only is plastic building up at an alarming rate in landfills, but it is by far the biggest component of litter, which eventually makes its way into the oceans. A 2012 Daily Mail report revealed that there is up to 27 times more plastics on our oceans than originally thought, and that plastics are not just a surface phenomenon but pollute seas as far as 20 metres down. On landfills and in the sea, plastics are notoriously slow to break down and cause untold harm to living organisms as they do. source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2136334/Scientists-warn-far-plastic-waste-previously-estimated-deeper-ocean.html

Another aspect of the sustainability issue is the non-renewable resources – coal and oil – used to produce plastics, polystyrenes and foam materials. Dimple PaperTM offers a viable solution to both the sourcing and disposal dilemma. Dimple PaperTM is made from brown kraft paper that is sourced from an FSC (Forestry Stewardship Council) certified paper mill. Dimple PaperTM is fully recyclable (unlike plastic-coated paper/board and oxo-biodegradable plastic) and fully biodegradable (unlike plastics – even biodegradable ones – when entombed in a landfill).
     
Combining excellent functionality with fantastic environmental credentials, Dimple PaperTM is the perfect sustainable packaging solution for companies with a conscience.
