Protect the environment - Do not throw away the cartridges!

Falter

We promote a campaign to support recycling empty cartridges.

In comparison with other European countries, Poland has a continuous increase in the demand for materials and products made of plastic.

Unfortunately the consequence is the growing problem of disposable packaging. It represents about 8% by weight and 30% by volume of all the waste [1]. Storage is becoming increasingly difficult. Burning of such waste results in an increase in emissions and toxic substances. Getting into the atmosphere, these substances pose a serious threat to the environment and human health.Most plastics do not biodegrade or decompose very slowly. Objects made of polymeric materials need 100 to 1000 years to decompose [2].

Re-use of waste plastics is the best method of removing them from the environment. This is the best and most responsible solution.

Plastic products, even at the end of their life cycle, retain their value as raw materials and are simply too valuable to be thrown away. Full use of waste materials in the processes of recycling and energy recovery, using the best available environmentally friendly technologies would allow the reduction of CO2 emissions in Europe by 9 million tonnes/year[3].


Falter company, by implementing a number of innovations, also wants to be a leader in the sense of responsibility for the environment.
