The World Economic Forum believes that by 2050 plastic waste will outweigh fish in the oceans. As a society, this projection is an indication that we have not taken care of our planet. GeneraCycle provides robust recycling programs to ensure plastic waste ends up in its rightful place, rather than just left in the environment.
95% of plastic used globally is discarded after a single use, representing a linear economy with a loss of 120 billion dollars. This statistic indicates we are depleting natural resources without a plan for recovery. While circular economy strategists theorize on recovery, these ideals may never include your local operations for many decades to come. GeneraCycle is working now and is working today to assist your operations in dealing with these real pressing matters. GeneraCycle will also help source revenue from your discarded materials. A clear defined path is one way of how GeneraCycle can assist your sustainability initiatives tap into the economy of recovery and help the planet at the same time.
EPIC PROPORTIONS OF WASTE
The annual carbon footprint of food produced and not eaten is estimated to be a staggering 3.3 Gigatonnes of CO2. This number does not take into account the amount of methane emitted from this waste nor the amount of greenhouse gas (GHG) emitted from land use and animal raising metrics. To provide a sense of scale, an A380 would need to fly non-stop for 13,698 years to emit the same amount of CO2 as is emitted in a single year from food waste. Yes, you read that right, 24 hours non-stop for 13,698 years.
GeneraCycle has pioneered some innovative collection models for food waste which sequesters CO2 and provides carbon credits while creating revenue. Talk about helping your bottom line!
