Plastics can be very-very useful even in their Disposed form today.

Few examples from India-

This waste plastics can also be used to make Liquid Fuels again(its Petroleum after all);Research is on this critical issue as well.

NO RATINGS

Guys,

Its good to see that a Majority feel Sustainability is going to play a greater part in the Supply Chain going ahead.

What I was wondering though was what was the Primary Factor driving this Consciousness?

Higher Energy Prices?

More Environmentally Conscious Employees?

Companies desperately looking to cut costs wherever they can to make ends meet Today?

Interesting poll for sure!

Regards

Ashish.
