Pluckk is an impact-oriented brand where we help, build and support the community we thrive in. Plastic has become omnipresent over the past few decades and it is important to recover & recyle the discarded plastic. We are partnering with ReCircle in their Plastic Neutral Program to not only recover the amount of plastic our business puts out in the environment but also mitigate its effects on environmental, social and economic fronts.
How are we doing this?
ReCircle’s Plastic Neutral Program is an effort to impact all aspects of the waste management sector. We are also a part of ReCircle’s social movement that supports the livelihoods of informal waste workers by buying low-valued, non-recyclable plastic from them.
Rest assured, we have planned to recover 6000 kgs of this low-valued, non-recyclable plastic. Put simply, each product of ours has already been neutralised in terms of its plastic footprint.
How is Plastic collected & Recycled?
Collection: Low-value, multi-layered packaging (MLP) plastic waste is collected from informal waste workers, landfills and dumping grounds, and waste generators like households, offices and institutions.
Pre-processing: This collected plastic is brought to a segregation facility to further sort and cleaned, if need be. Then, it is pre-processed by baling or shredding.
Processing: The pre-processed plastic waste is dispatched for final processing to relevant processors. It is used as raw material for conversion to energy, road-making or other alternative applications like recycling.
