(press release distribution) Plastic pallets are looking very green these days. The race to be green has been on for years. In this economy the real goal is to be a smart as possible about it. It is not enough to just recycle anymore; there are light bulbs, windows, appliances and a growing list of greener possibilities. But going green can be expensive, if only at first, and companies are looking for an immediate way to save money.
When you think green products, plastic does not necessarily pop into your mind first. We think of plastic waste building up in our dumps around the world and floating around in our oceans. People in general have been much more educated about the improper disposal of plastic than how it can make a company greener.
Wood pallets are used to transport products of every imaginable kind around the world. Wood is a resource that needs to be renewed regularly and its lifespan is extremely short in comparison to plastic. Companies spend millions in time and effort replacing, repairing and disposing of wood pallets. A plastic pallet in place of a wood pallet could save hundreds or thousands of dollars a year for a company that ships product consistently. Plastic needs repair much less, and repairs are easy and long lasting. A plastic pallet can be designed to fit a difficult to transport product in a safer and sturdier way. Without putting a specific number on lifespan as it will vary greatly due to the nature of what is being shipped, it is safe to say that a plastic pallet will have a life many times a wooden one and should be thought of in terms of years instead of uses.
We are all familiar with the campaigns to recycle plastic bottles or plastic bags among other plastic items with specific codes on the packaging and plastic shipping pallets are exactly the same. Customers may opt to manufacture out of recycled material from the beginning or when a plastic pallet is out of use it can also be recycled into reusable material. Irresponsible disposal of these parts can totally be avoided.
