Replas wants to ensure that their customers are receiving all the information they need to make the best purchase. Also to understand what happens with their waste and how it’s used to make these products. Please visit Replas statements and information below to get the full scope on Replas recycled plastic products.
Replas recycles a wide range of rigid and soft plastics collected through industry and the community. For information regarding what you can recycle at your local Coles or Woolies, check out Red Group and their guides on how and what to recycle. The REDcycle Program is true product stewardship sharing responsibility in creating a sustainable future.
We can help you calculate just how much plastic you’re saving from landfill by purchasing a Replas product. Simply put in the weight of the specified product to see how many pieces of plastic packaging goes into the product.
The Replas process is very efficient – we use about 25% of the power that it takes to make virgin plastic. Replas does not wash the plastic making it so there is no water used. Replas only adds colour and UV stabiliser to their products at an add rate of roughly 2%.
The only waste created are any contaminates like aluminum cans or bottles which are of course recycled. The other bonus is that Replas products replace a lot of things that use valuable resources like timber etc. These products at end of life, or when damaged, can be recycled back into new recycled plastic products.
Replas’ plastic recycling leads to low maintenance products that are designed to last. Recycled plastic is resistant to termites, microorganisms and moisture, and will never split, rot, crack or need painting. Through the REDcycle Program Replas is proud to partner with companies, such as Coles and Woolworths, who have taken responsibility for the plastic waste they create. The soft plastic material collected through the program can be recycled by Replas and turned into products designed for outdoor use within the community.
Replas Environmental Statement
With plastic use on the rise, we need to create a sustainable community that reduces, re-uses and recycles plastics. At Replas, we see waste as a valuable resource, and are part of making this world more sustainable. What is the environmental cost in not being involved in the circular economy? By re-thinking your selection and procurement to recycled plastic products, you become the true recycler. Everyone touches plastic and we must be more accountable and responsible if we are to drive demand for recycled plastic products.
