By choosing to use recycled and recyclable paper in paper cup production, MICHAEL PROCOS S.A. demonstrates a commitment to sustainable practices that benefit the environment and the communities we serve. The major environmental benefits of this practice are:
- Resource conservation: Utilizing recycled paper reduces the demand for virgin paper, conserving trees and reducing deforestation. This helps maintain biodiversity and promotes healthier ecosystems.
- Energy savings: The production process for recycled paper requires less energy compared to making virgin paper, which lowers greenhouse gas emissions and contributes to a smaller carbon footprint.
- Waste reduction: By using recyclable paper cups, we can divert waste from landfills and incinerators, reducing pollution and conserving space in waste disposal facilities.
- Water savings: Producing recycled paper requires less water than the production of virgin paper, which helps conserve this valuable resource and reduce the strain on water supplies.
- Reduced pollution: The manufacturing process for recycled paper generates fewer pollutants and fewer harmful chemicals compared to virgin paper production, resulting in cleaner air and water.
