The use of plastic in Western Europe is growing at an estimated 4% each year since its growth into widespread usage in the 20th century,but can take up to 500 years to decompose if not disposed correctly. We are encouraged to do our best within our homes, so why not within our business?
At GJ Plastics, we are proud to be part of the solution. We are delighted to offer the first 100% recycled cast acrylic sheet, called Greencast. Manufactured in Italy, and has been independently verified and tested by German and Italian universities and been in production or the last 2 years. 
Greencast is 100% recycled cast acrylic produced in clear or coloured sheets. If offers the same clarity and performance as standard virgin acrylics, so you’re not comprising on quality, and has the same mechanical and physical properties as standard virgin acrylic. Greencast uses less water and CO2 to manufacture than virgin sheet production, and is VOC and HFC free which complies with ISO 7823.1
Here at GJ Plastics, we also do our part in helping the environment. 
We have successfully been operating a closed loop system for our own plastic waste for the last three years. We’ve done this by preventing our waste being sent to landfills by recycling old stock in to new, as we are firm believers that not only is this a sure way to save on precious resources, but it also contributes to the solution of our waste produce and improving our carbon footprint.
An estimated 275,000 tonnes of plastic are used each year here in the UK. That amounts to up to 15 million bottles per day! If people were to recycle not only within their household, but in their businesses too, it would provide a sustainable source of raw materials to industries and consume less energy than it would to produce new virgin polymers and would avoid the consumption of the earth’s oil stocks.
