PLASTIC

Lucy Siegle author of Turning the Tide on Plastic comments that we are living in the Plastic Age.

Since the 1950s we have produced 8.3 bn tones of plastic. Only 9% of which have been recycled with the remainder being incinerated, placed in the landfill and discarded into our oceans.

Roadfill®is actively working with Local Government Authorities to remove plastic waste and turn it into products that reduce our use of fossil fuels to repair and relay roads.

Although a modern day problem, plastic was first invented by Alexander Parkes, a Victorian entrepreneur who filed a patent in 1855 and named it Parkesine. The aim was to find a better solution to the mass slaughter of elephants, turtles, oysters, and cows which were used to make buttons. Now though our plastic reliance is killing the environment and wildlife. Roadfill® and it’s product Roadworx® is helping to turn plastic waste into renewable products.
