Plastic pollution is one of the worlds largest headache right now. Here in our Dhaka factory we turn plastic bags into rubber sheets for local footwear industry. More than 50% of the raw materials are from thrown away single use plastic bags, rest of the raw materials are filler agent, color and some chemical additives.
We have LDPE, LDP, LLDP, EVA, PE, HDPE, MDPE etc grade recycled plastic granules in our process. These type of plastics are dangerous for environment if not recycled properly.
Every kilogram of fossil-based plastic produced, there is between 1.7 and 3.5 kilograms of carbon dioxide released. Sine we only use recycled granules in our synthetic rubber production process, we save up to 7 metric ton of carbon emission. However very few CO2 released when recycle process starts but the amount negligible.
Our plan is to recycle more than 5 metric ton plastic bags daily. We have invested in new technology and machineries.
“It takes 20 to 500 years to dissolve plastic into landfills”
Sustainability and Circular Economy in Action
With great power comes great responsibilities. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle these three words are not just words. They are our core value in business. We pay a premium for discarded plastic bags to ensure a sustainable income for plastic collectors (also known as “Tokai” or “Vangariwala“) in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Because they do the heavy lifting but neglected by society.
