Over the past 50 years or so humanity has grown at an exponential rate and our consumption of products at an even faster rate.
In 2018, The Global Footprint Network estimated that humanity would have used up its natural resources by 1st August.
"We are using 1.7 Earths. We use more ecological resources and services than nature can regenerate through overfishing, overharvesting forests, and emitting more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than ecosystems can absorb" - Source: The Global Footprint Network
What it really comes down to is finding ways to reduce the impact of humanity on our eco-systems. There are many ways to do this but no quick fixes, unfortunately. It is going to take a team effort from all of us.
However, the most effective philosophy is to simply reduce the amount of waste you create as an individual. Together the results can literally change the world.
Remember, that whenever you reduce your consumption of anything, you are saving the planet just a little bit more.
Often times though, we need to buy products. So what can you do to help reduce the impact of these choices?
Whenever you consider buying anything you should always take into consideration the following key points.
If you can answer yes to these questions then you have done better than 99% of people who currently buy without consideration.
One of the most effective ways to reduce waste is to recycle. Not only is it more efficient to use recycled materials from an energy point of view but, it also eliminates waste from our garbage dumps or worse contaminating our oceans.
Why are recycling levels so low? Quite simply, recycling can be inefficient and is expensive when compared to using virgin materials.
The only way to increase recycling rates and stop filling our garbage dumps up is to put a value on recycled materials. And to do this you must first start using it.
We manufacture our products on a small Island in the Pacific Ocean, known as Taiwan. A little-known fact is that Taiwan is a world leader in the manufacture of recycled materials.
So, in 2018 WRAPTIE™ developed it's very first recycled webbing (R-PET), for use in our tie-down straps.We are very proud to announce that each one of our 130 | 180 | 240 tie down straps contains the equivalent of 1 plastic bottle of soda. So, every time someone buys a WRAPTIE™, that is 1 plastic bottle that won't be making it into the oceans.
