Why Use Recycled Plastic For Packaging?

The packaging industry uses more plastics than any other type of commerce. In

fact, every year, 36 percent of all plastics produced goes into innumerable types of

casings. From bottles of soda and take-out-food containers to boxes and film

wraps, plastics are so versatile that they can be formed into boundless shapes.

Blackrock Plastics specializes in selling post-industrial plastics so they can be

repurposed instead of being bought new. If your company is interested in buying

these plastics so you can transform them into your packaging needs, look to

Blackrock. One of our account managers will help and guide you from start to


There are many reasons to buy used plastics for repurposing reasons, with the main

reason being to save the Earth. Plastics are the top culprits when it comes to visible

environmental pollution. All over the world, it’s on the ground and in all of our

oceans and seas.

The fact that plastic is so durable is a blessing and a curse. The positive aspects are

that it’s incredibly durable—almost indestructible!—and light in weight. The

negative aspect—and this is a big one—is that it can take hundreds of years before

a plastic bottle, box or another kind of packaging starts to decay. Scientists have

estimated that a PET (polyethylene terephthalate) bottle can take 450 years to

disappear. But before it vanishes, it dissolves into microplastic pieces, which can

enter our food chain via all of those polluted oceans and seas.
