The Crisis is happening now

This is not a problem that can be kicked down the road like a plastic water bottle. Single use packaging is suffocating our planet and our childrens’ future – NOW. 

Less than 5% of packaging plastics are recycled. Time has proven that recycling is not the solution. The intricacies of how to recycle effectively is complicated and therefore miscommunicated, misunderstood and mismanaged. 

New solutions are the only solution. We need a change for climate change’s sake.

This motivation is at the heart of SealGlobal.Co

This is our reality.

The Petro-Chemical

Processing Industry

What would you say to an industry that processed 99 MILLION barrels of plastic each day?

To the Petro-Chemical Processing industry that is shamelessly choking our atmosphere with no end in sight?

At SealGlobal.Co we believe enough words have been spoken. It’s time for actionable solutions that bring honest, visible and proven change.

It’s time to stop the choking and begin to breathe new hope.

Plastic Facts

1. Per a study published in Science Advances 8.3 Billion metric tonnes of plastic has been generated across the world since the 1950’s and only 9% has been recycled. The unrecycled plastic is building up in landfills and slowly breaking down into arguably more dangerous microplastics. 

2. The Science Advance study further shows that almost 40% of all plastic ever generated is for packaging purposes.

3. The National Geographic reports that roughly half of all plastic that has ever existed was made in the past 15 years. By 2050, approximately 12 billion metric tons of plastic will be sitting in landfills across the globe

4. Ocean Conservancy estimate that 8 Million metric tonnes of plastic enters the earth’s oceans per year – plastics in our oceans threaten not only the viability of critical marine ecosystems but further impact global food, water and air. 

5. Boris Johnson recently stated, when answering questions ahead of the COP26 climate change summit, that Recycling plastic materials “doesn’t work” and “is not the answer” to threats to global oceans and marine wildlife

*The 2021 Buying Green Report is based on a survey of more than 15,000 end consumers across Europe, North America and South America. Within each region, the sample of respondents was representative of the overall population in terms of age, gender and income distribution. Survey questions explored participant behaviors related to sustainable packaging, including their willingness to pay more for eco-friendly packaging, and perceptions of different packaging materials.
