Recycling has become a buzzword in our efforts to combat environmental challenges. We've all been encouraged to recycle our plastics, but did you know that not all plastics can be recycled? It's essential to understand the differences between plastic types and their recyclability to make informed choices. In this blog post, we'll delve into the world of plastic coding and the importance of using recyclable plastics.

Deciphering the Plastic Code

You may have noticed a number on your plastic containers, like water bottles and food containers. This code is not just a random label; it signifies the type of plastic used in the item. However, it's important to note that this code does not guarantee recyclability.

The Code's Purpose

The plastic code, a number typically encased in a triangle of arrows, serves as a tool for consumers and recycling facilities to identify the type of plastic. Understanding these codes can help us make better choices when it comes to purchasing and disposing of plastic products.

The HDPE 2 Difference

enviroCare, in its commitment to sustainability, uses HDPE 2, which stands for High-Density Polyethylene. HDPE 2 is one of the most recyclable plastics. Here's why it matters:

  • Recyclability: HDPE 2 is highly recyclable. Recycling facilities across the globe can efficiently process and repurpose this type of plastic.
  • Local Sourcing: enviroCare understands the importance of reducing carbon footprints. That's why we source our HDPE 2 plastic from local suppliers, ensuring that our operations are as environmentally friendly as possible.
  • Endless Possibilities: When HDPE 2 is recycled, it can be transformed into various products, including more plastic containers, durable garden furniture, and essential pipes. This circular approach to plastic usage significantly reduces waste and conserves resources.

In our collective efforts to protect the environment, it's vital to identify the recyclable plastics from the non-recyclable ones. Together, we can reduce waste, minimise our carbon footprint, and create a cleaner, greener world for generations to come.

Logistics Status & Pricing Update | 8th Feb 2022

Further to the previous logistics update, the spread of omicron variant continues to play havoc with many courier drivers, warehouse staff, forklift drivers, container unpack crews and administrators across the country.

To make logistics even more difficulty the East-West rail line is closed due to significant flooding including to both the Eyre and Stuart Highways, South Australia.

Please allow (at least) an extra 14 business days on top of your estimated date for arrival.

envirocare earth has always worked our best to minimise delivery costs but as a result of the ongoing issues affecting logistics all online orders will now attract a delivery charge.

We encourage you to order in bulk; saving on product, delivery and helping the environment.

Your patience and understanding is appreciated and we hope that normality can return soon.

Omicron Logistics Status Update | 12th Jan 22

The rapid spread of the Omicron variant has further impacted the logistics industry. This includes many courier drivers, warehouse staff, forklift drivers, container unpack crews and administrators.

Due to the widespread impact of Omicron infections, our partnered carriers across the network are experiencing both a surge in parcel deliveries and major disruptions to their delivery services. With a significant number of people in self-isolation in accordance with state regulations and public health orders, delivery delays are expected across the network due to driver shortages, depots experiencing temporary closures and/or operating with significantly reduced staff.

This has also created some lags in tracking details being updated on carrier websites.

Please allow (at least) an extra 14 business days on top of your estimated date for arrival.

Your patience and understanding is appreciated.
