The way it is normally used, yes, plastic is bad for the environment.

Unless its recycled, plastic is unsightly, can be fatally ingested by wildlife, can last in landfill for, potentially, centuries, and in the case of some kinds of PVC in particular, can leach harmful chemicals into the ecosystem.

This is why it is vital that all of us look for ways to keep recycling the existing plastic that is already in circulation rather than just casually throwing it away and pretending that it’s someone else’s problem.

Here at Low Carbon Products, we take advantage of this “pervasiveness in the environment” to provide a range of ultra-tough, maintenance-free products that keep society’s plastic out of landfill and put to good use.
