Plastics re-use

Re-using plastics

Re-using is about giving a second life to a product, which implies finding a second market for it or using it for a different purpose (e.g. input to produce another item). Leveraging innovative trading platforms is a simple way for businesses to start tackling their excess inventory stocks and unused items. (Tonelli & Cristoni, 2019).

Plastic containers can be reused over and over. For instance, a container that originally contained a detergent could be cleaned and used at home to store milk. Hence someone collecting these detergent containers could choose the good ones and clean them and then resell them for alternative uses at home. Reselling fetches a higher price normally as compared to crushing and selling flaked plastics for recycling.
