Fibrenew is a business solution to a serious environmental problem. Each year, thousands of tons of plastics are disposed in landfill sites. These products are not biodegradable and can pollute landfills for hundreds of years.
Some quick facts about plastics and our environment:
When plastics are buried in a landfill, they occupy 25 percent of all landfill space. (Source: US Energy Information Administration)
Roughly 10 percent of the fossil fuel consumed in the U.S. is used to manufacture plastics and fibres. This equates to roughly 740 million barrels of oil per year. (Source: Truth About Trade and Technology, Newswise)
At least 6 states in the US have less than 5 years of remaining landfill capacity. (Source: US EPA)
Reusing one ton of plastic:
- Saves 5,774 kWh energy
- Saves 16.3 barrels (685 gallons) of oil
- Saves 98 million Btu’s of energy
- Saves 30 cubic yards of landfill space
