BPS Helping to reduce plastic bottle waste.

BPS and ARRI are committed to helping to reduce plastic bottles waste…

Did you know virtually every piece of plastic that was ever made still exists in some shape or form (with the exception of the small amount that has been incinerated) and that ONE MILLION plastic bottles are bought EVERY MINUTE around the world — and that number will top half a TRILLION by 2021.

Less than half of those bottles end up getting recycled. 8 MILLION METRIC TONS of plastic winds up in our oceans each year. That’s enough trash to cover every foot of coastline around the world with five full trash bags of plastic…compounding every year. 

One final fact that is shocking is if plastic production isn’t curbed, plastic pollution will outweigh fish pound for pound by 2050.

BPS with ARRI are continuing journey to go going plastic bottle free, we have new aluminium reusable flasks, so come and join us.
