We are Serious about Sustainability
One of the biggest winners of the Plastfix solution is the natural environment. Currently there are thousands of tonnes of bumper bars, headlights, and other automotive plastic waste being dumped illegally, stored on farmland, or put into landfill.
Adopting the Plastfix solution has proven to reduce automotive plastic waste by 70%. As a flow-on effect, your general waste will also reduce due to the reduction of packaging for new parts.
Plastfix has partnered with leading professionals in carbon emissions management and sustainability to offer our customers a CO2 reduction reading with every plastic component we repair. This estimate is calculated using a matrix of energy saving mathematical equations. This calculation covers the whole repair process; stretching back to the material of the new part, logistics, packaging, and delivery methods. It even factors-in the preparation process of that component, for example parts of a bumper bar that may have needed painting. For components that have no recycling value and head straight to landfill (like headlights), the benefit of replacing or repairing the component is also taken into account. Having this information can help your business make smarter decisions about component parts, and help divert unnecessary waste ending up in a landfill.
Our CO2 saving reading serves as a reminder to the industry, and raises awareness that repairing parts, rather than replacing them, is a win for everyone: The customer, the environment, and the economy.
