SO, WHY DOES VITA-ELECTRIC® SAY NO TO NON-RECYCLABLE PLASTIC JARS AND BOTTLES?
WE SAY NO TO PLASTIC BOTTLES & JARS!
VITA-ELECTRIC® ONLY USE AND SUPPLY GLASS JARS & BOTTLES FOR OUR PRODUCTS HELPING TO PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT.
PLASTIC IS TOXIC TO OUR PLANET.
In landfills where plastic products may take up to 1,000 years to decompose and potentially leak pollutants into the soil and water. It is estimated that there are 100 million tons of plastic debris floating around in the oceans threatening and affecting the health and safety of marine life and our planet. Synthetic plastic does not biodegrade. It just sits and accumulates in landfills or pollutes the environment.
OUR JAR & BOTTLE LIDS ARE 100% RECYCLABLE!
SO, PLASTIC IS HARD TO RECYCLE IT SEEMS?
Comparatively, little plastic is recycled because there are numerous types of plastic with different chemical compositions, and recycled plastics can be contaminated by the mixing of types.
Furthermore, UV light and seawater salt cause microscopic particles of plastic to release toxic chemicals such as PCBs and DDT. When ingested by the various types of marine species, these can be mistaken for estradiol, a sex hormone, causing a variety of symptoms related to endocrine disruption. Not only does plastic disposal contribute to a range of environmental problems, but the human body also absorbs chemicals added to plastics.
VITA-ELECTRIC® are happy to do its part of adopting a stance and contribute in helping our planet globally to be less toxic and become healthier by only providing glass jar and bottle products and 100% recyclable, degradable delivery packaging supplied by our couriers DPD.
