At Schoeller Plast we take our responsibility to prevent undesirable handling of plastic, and we have as part of many sustainable initiatives drawn up a plan for the collection, grinding, washing, and recycling of the plastic in the most environmental way.
The resent strategy proposal from the Government “Strategy for circular economy” suggests promoting a more consistent collection of the household waste within the councils as a necessity in the work regarding increase of the recycling of plastics.
We have accepted this proposal, and as a completely new initiative we have started the production of the HOMEFARM capillary boxes in used household waste, which has been collected in several cities in Jutland through the consumers’ waste separation. With this new initiative we have made the production and the distribution of HOMEFARM even more sustainable than ever before.
HOMEFARM’s capillary boxes are produced in 100 per cent recycled plastic, and it uses considerably less amount of CO2 than the traditionally used polystyrene box.
Furthermore the emission of CO2 is reduced significantly during transportation of HOMEFARM capillary boxes compared to the classic capillary box of polystyrene, because the well thought out design makes it possible to transport approx. four times as many HOMEFARM boxes per pallet. The vision behind HOMEFARM is to reduce the CO2 emission according to UN’s WORLD GOALS about a responsible production and consumption, a bigger climate contribution and an improvement of life in the oceans.
HOMEFARM can be bought at 85 selected retailers and during the coming season from spring 2020 it will be available in the leading nurseries and garden centers.
