REDUCING YOUR IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT WITH EKO EUROPE
THE IMPORTANCE OF SEPARATING YOUR WASTE
Separating your waste has a big impact on the environment. By using our waste as a raw material, we save on our primary raw materials. For example, fewer trees need to be cut for paper and we need to extract less petroleum for plastic. Recycling often costs less energy than extracting raw materials for new materials, which is better for the climate. The quality of recycled materials, if we collect and sort them correctly, is often just as good. You can also save money by separating your waste. This is because your municipality spends less money on processing the waste. Separating waste is good for the climate and your wallet. Separating waste is very easy with EKO bins!
THE LIFESPAN OF AN EKO BIN
EKO bins have many advantages. One of the biggest advantages an EKO bin has is that the lifespan is way longer than an average bin. This is mainly because of the material we’re using. All of our bins are made with the highest quality (brushed) stainless steel. EKO products are designed in-house and manufactured in our own factory with qualified personnel. Therefore, we can guarantee the optimal quality of our products and the best value for your money.
Besides all of this, sustainable procurement can help you in many different ways. As mentioned before, an EKO bin has a longer lifespan than a normal bin. This means that you save money over the life of an EKO bin.
4 MAIN REASONS TO BUY AN ENVIRONMENT-FRIENDLY BIN
Reducing your impact on the environment is something you’ll do when you buy a recycling EKO bin. Down below we show you how buying an EKO bin contributes to your impact on the environment.
1. REDUCE WASTE THAT IS SENT TO LANDFILLS
An American study found that 72% of all waste that is sent to landfills consists of materials that could be put to better use through recycling. Unfortunately, dumps have harmful effects on clean air and water. With our EKO bins, separating your waste is very easy due to the double inner liner. Separate your waste and prevent pollution!
2. BUYING STAINLESS STEEL
Most of our bins are made of stainless steel. Stainless steel plays an important role in sustainable design and alternative energy evolution. The best thing about stainless steel is that it has no reduction in quality. Besides that, stainless steel is environmentally friendly because this material is corrosion-resistant and durable.
3. BUYING RECYCLING EKO BINS MEANS YOU PROTECT NATURAL RESOURCES
Mining and refining raw materials take way more time than reusing them. Recycling those materials helps to protect natural resources from being destroyed by mining. In addition, a lot of exhaust gases are released when raw materials are obtained due to the many machines that are involved. Before throwing away products that are made of natural resources, think if a product can be recycled and reused. Just like we do.
4. RECYCLING PRODUCTS CONTRIBUTE TO ECONOMIC GROWTH
Recycling your waste means that you contribute to economic growth. The recycling industry created jobs for drivers, sorters, mechanics, material recovery facility managers, and sales representatives. Those workers do not only help the manufacturers, but they also provide economic benefits for the communities they are part of. Make sure to recycle your products in one of our bins and contribute to economic growth!
