Goplasticpallets.com stocks a range of plastic pallets, pallet boxes and small containers. Mindful of the environmental impact of plastic, the company focuses on reducing plastic waste by taking responsibility for the recycling of the pallets and boxes it supplies. 96% of the company’s plastic pallets are made from recycled materials

The company has removed the burden of responsibility from buyers by taking control of the process, supplying pallets manufactured from used pallets and delivering them to the buyer. At the end of the pallet’s life, Goplasticpallets.com resumes its responsibility for the product, sending it to its recycling partner, where it is recycled and the process begins again. This creates a closed manufacturing loop, an initiative they are now sharing with purchasers.

Goplasticpallets.com’s vision is to alter perceptions of plastic and educate potential buyers as to the benefits of opting for recycled and sustainable plastic products. Misconceptions surrounding the use of plastic have arisen from confusion about the use of single-use plastic items, such as food wrapping and disposable products. Plastic that is recycled and recyclable is not a danger to the environment and is, in fact, stronger, longer-lasting and more hygienic than wood, able to withstand repeated use and protect products from moisture and damage.

Jim Hardisty, Managing Director of Goplasticpallets.com said: “The unrivalled strength and durability of plastic is often overlooked as people are confused by messages about single-use plastics, applying them to all plastic products. This leads them to overlook the option of using plastic products sustainably with an eco-conscious focus. Our website now offers a wealth of detail about the process, from the manufacture of the initial pallet through to it being recycled into another pallet. We aim to have recycled 2000 tonnes of plastic pallets by 2025 and are understandably proud of our commitment as The Responsible Plastic Pallet Company. We are thrilled to be sharing some insights with both our existing and potential customers.”
