less deforestion, cleaner oceans
Plastics get a bad rap, especially when it comes to discarded plastics in the marine environment. I came across an interesting story today, about a company in Australia that is developing technology to reprocess mixed plastic waste into shipping pallets. The company is Range International (www.rangeinternational.com), and their product is called Re>Pal.
Not only does the technology reduce deforestation (some claim the wooden pallet industry is a major contributor to that issue), they are using 100% mixed waste plastic as a material source. The company even counts Prince Albert of Monaco as an investor.
