Corrugated Polypropylene And The Environment

Corrugated Polypropylene and the Environment

As you consider utilizing corrugated polypropylene, whether as a packing material, to create signage, for storage containers, or for some other use, it’s important to understand what its environmental impact is. If you want an eco-friendly plastics option, corrugated polypropylene is a great option for you.

What is the environmental impact? 

Unlike many other types of packaging or materials, corrugated polypropylene can be reused multiple times. If it’s well constructed, it can be used dozens of times before needing to be disposed, though even then it can be recycled. When it comes to recycling, the energy required to recycle corrugated plastic is much less than that of other materials, such as cardboard. When it comes to creating polypropylene, it is also produced with lower greenhouse gas emissions and lower energy usage than other fiber resins and produces no toxic waste. Corrugated polypropylene is also biodegradable and can be burned without producing toxic gases.

How can it be used?

Corrugated polypropylene has a wide range of uses; its versatility and eco-friendliness make it a great alternative for many other types of materials. It can be used to create outdoor signs, event advertising, storage containers, packing materials, graphic displays, temporary walls, and a variety of other uses. Nearly any industry can find a use for corrugated polypropylene, from marketing efforts to packaging to design.

What to do once you’re done with it?

When you’re done using corrugated polypropylene, make sure you dispose of it in the most responsible way possible. Some manufacturers may buy back your used or unused materials. If this option does not work, you can also take the corrugated polypropylene to a recycling facility in your area that accepts it.
