PLASTIC FREE PROJECT

Plastic free bottle

C.R. Technology Systems has developed its own plastic free project with the aim of reducing the single-use plastic in the company.

The adoption of good practices, in everyday working life, integrates sustainable attitude to the company strategies aimed to the staff and the environment well-being. In this way everyone can contribute concretely to the care of the planet.

The project highlights are the following:

  • Elimination of plastic bottles and glasses
  • Installation of still, sparkling and chilled water dispensers
  • Distribution of customized steel thermos bottles to employees
  • Use of glass bottles for meetings and conferences
  • Use of biodegradable and compostable cuts
  • Replacement of plastic steerers with the wooden ones
  • Separate collection of any residual plastic

These actions will grant to save a yearly production of just over 60 kilograms of plastic and 360 kilos of CO2 in the environment. These are small figures in contrast with the 8 million tons of plastic that are spread every year into our oceans (source UN), or to the 1000/2000 tons of microplastics that end up on Italian beaches (source Pisa University), but every journey starts with a first step.

Moreover, it is right to keep in mind that it takes from 500 to 1000 years to partially dispose of a plastic bottle, and from 50 to 100 years for a glass.
