Plastics Sustain World's Billions

World Sustainability

The British Plastics Federation (BPF) has marked the occasion of the world's seven billion by urging world governments to recognise the role plastic plays in human survival.

The trade body said the use of plastics was "key to supporting population growth and raising the hopes of deprived people." BPF's director Peter Davis stated that it was "crucial that policy makers world over register this simple point - that plastics help people on this planet survive in increasingly testing circumstances."

Davis highlighted the key areas where plastic products are helping responses to environmental and social challenges in today world and proves that plastic is fantastic!

Reducing Food Waste

Sealed and durable plastics packaging preserves food for longer, is hygienic and minimises the possibility of health hazards through bacterial or fungal attack.

Minimising Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Plastics components significantly reduce the weight of motor vehicles and aircraft, improving their fuel efficiency and reducing emissions. The new generation of jet passenger aircraft use plastics composites to lighten their body weight.
