Problems & Solutions
Household products are a large portion of the contribution to landfill waste, for example, crisp bags and toothpaste tube are two of the hardest products to recycle due to the separation of materials within the product themselves. Crisp packets, made from seven layers of foil and plastic made this way to reduce shipping volume. A hard ineffective way to help recycle the market for recycling crisp bags is not cost effective and there is no market for it. A solution to this is that although it is not quick fix if company’s and businesses decide to go forward fewer layers or metal and plastic will be fused together this will reduce time and cost of the separation and recycling of the crisps packets.
