With so much negative publicity surrounding plastic packaging in the consumer media – much of which is inaccurate or misinformed – RPC Group has put together a series of short videos that aim to give a succinct and balanced response to some of the frequently asked questions on this issue.

Topics covered in the four 60 second videos are the call to ban plastics altogether, an explanation of the plastics recycling process, the problems of ocean litter, the reasons behind the use of plastic in food packaging, and an understanding of the role of biodegradable plastics.

“We want to provide viewers with short and reasoned explanations of plastics’ role in packaging, including the benefits it brings and how to tackle some of the problems associated with its disposal,” explains RPC Group’s Sustainability Manager Katherine Fleet.

“We hope customers, consumers and all interested parties will find these useful aids in establishing a clearer picture of the ways in which we can continue to enjoy the many benefits of plastics while minimising their impact on the environment.”

The videos can be viewed on the RPC Group website (www.rpc-group.com).

RPC Tedeco-Gizeh, the UK’s sole manufacturer of plastic vending cups, is launching a unique initiative to help customers recycle their used cups into valuable second life products. The company is working with its sister business from the RPC Group, RPC bpi recycled products, so that vending suppliers and operators who collect their own used cups can deliver them to the RPC bpi facility in Dumfries. There they will be reprocessed and blended with other recycled polymers for use in the manufacture of RPC bpi’s market-leading Plaswood.
