We are experiencing a global plastic dependence crisis.
About 1 garbage truck full is dumped in the ocean every minute. Globally, only 10% of plastic is being recycled and we continue to produce more year on year. Soft plastics (such as wrappers, snack bags and many plastic bags) are not recyclable and are the #1 contaminant in curbside recycling, creating a need and opportunity for an environmentally safe alternative.
Even the most remote areas of the world are littered with microplastics. Animals, coral reefs, waterways and communities are suffering from this plastic pollution, causing long term effects on environmental and public health.
The world is screaming out for a better way. Carapac offers an innovative solution to the plastic problem and a way forward for the world of packaging.
