Plastic is a really useful product but the problem is that most of it isn’t biodegradable. It doesn’t rot and it can hang around in the environment for hundreds of years. This is bad enough when it is in a landfill site, but much worse when it is left as litter or ends up in the sea.
Each year, 400 million tonnes of plastic are produced. Around 40% of that is single-use – used once, often for only a few minutes, and then thrown away. Whilst some of our plastic can be recycled – bottles and food containers can go in our blue bins – many plastics can’t be recycled and lots end up as litter. ‘PlasticSmart’ is asking us all to avoid single-use plastics whenever we can.
Blackheath Pottery is conscious of the impact of single-use plastics. We are working hard to avoid single-use plastics in our pottery.
To reduce single-use plastics, we are:
- wrapping our products in a corrugated card, paper, corn starch peanuts, and paper masking tape
- reusing plastic packaging when it arrives with our deliveries
- working with our suppliers to reduce plastic packaging
