The Canada Plastics Pact released the “Roadmap to 2025: A shared action plan to build a circular economy for plastics” Oct. 21. The document reflects how the organization envisions the development of a circular economy for polymers. Organized by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, the CPP is composed of 70 businesses, non profit organizations, and governments, and modeled after other plastics pacts around the world.
Like the organization itself, the 2025 Roadmap is modeled after plans published by other pacts, and strays from the traditional 3 recycling Rs, focusing instead on three strategic priorities: reduce, reuse, and collect. George Roter, managing director of the CPP stated, “Canadians, our governments and our businesses have had enough of plastic waste. The Roadmap is designed to comprehensively address this problem quickly and together, and sets forth both coordinated individual business actions and the system changes that are needed into a single agenda with ambitious targets for 2025.” The Canada Plastics Pact would like all of its partners to achieve a set of plastic packaging targets including, but not limited to, 100 percent reusable, recyclable or compostable plastic packaging by 2025.
What many people don’t realize is that plastics are used to manufacture electronics as well. Along with the precious metals used to create sleek surfaces, plastic is used inside electronics, as well as in the packaging. Proper electronic recycling can help reduce the amount of plastic required to make more devices. IT asset disposition enterprises like HOBI International Inc. collect old electronics and ensure that they are properly disposed of.
