Plastic – the world’s most talked about waste

From blighting the world’s oceans, to their single-use unacceptability, plastics have become one of – if not the – most talked about ‘wastes’ on the planet. Addressing the problem at source is now a priority for the American government, environmentally-responsible corporations and the general public. With product manufacturers being tasked with helping to address the issue, we should now finally see the much-needed step-change that is required to promote the greater reuse and recycling of plastics. But where does shredding fit in?
