It takes less energy to produce plastic materials. In addition, their light weight saves on fuel during shipping and, later, results in reduced weight in trash. Finally, once they have become waste, plastics can still have value in recycling or through incineration to recover their energy value.
Among plastic’s properties are their light weight, versatility, durability, electrically insulation, and impact absorption.
Plastic containers are practically unbreakable, which prevents spills or damage in food products.
With plastic, consumers can see the product with its color, freshness, and composition, and plastic prevents deterioration and complies with the rules of hygiene.
Plastics are chemically inert and, as such, are completely safe for packaging medicines, foods, and liquids. In addition, plastics are lightweight, versatile, and durable, and they provide electrical insulation and absorb impacts.
