SUPA stands for Single Use Plastic Alternative, the world's first 100% plastic, and metal-free cleaning products in paper bottles! This revolutionary product is made with sustainably sourced pulp waste created during sugar cane production and a natural plant-based coating to protect the contents inside.
SUPA's eco-mate range of cleaning products is designed to help reduce household consumption of plastic bottles, preventing them from ending up in landfills, being burnt or discarded in the environment, and ultimately finding their way into our oceans. SUPA's paper bottles are more accessible to recycle than plastic, break down naturally when composted, and do not create microplastics that harm the environment.
In this article, we look at how SUPA can help reduce single-use plastic waste, the benefits of using a paper bottle instead of traditional plastic or metal containers, and how SUPA’s plant-based coating makes them safe for use.
What’s the Problem with Plastic Bottles?
Plastic bottles are everywhere, and their overuse is causing widespread environmental damage. According to the Marine Conservation Society UK (MCSUK), 8-12 million metric tons of plastic end up in our oceans every year, with 80% coming from land-based sources. The primary culprits? Everyday items like drinks bottles and other types of plastic packaging. This figure is set to rise by an additional 20% by 2021, according to experts.
In the UK, 480 plastic bottles are used per household each year with only 270 being recycled– resulting in nearly 16 million bottles not making it into the recycling bin daily. A single 1-liter bottle releases 100g of Carbon Dioxide (CO2), a major greenhouse gas, and requires 162 g of oil and seven liters of water to create.
These statistics are even more concerning when you consider that nearly two-fifths (37%) of children in the UK mainly drink bottled rather than tap water– contributing to the devastating environmental impact of plastic bottles.
The latest Beachwatch survey revealed that 159 plastic bottles were found per mile of beach surveyed, a clear sign that something needs to be done. It’s essential that we all take steps to reduce our reliance on single-use plastic bottles and opt for more sustainable options instead. Not only is this better for the planet, but it can also help us save money in the long term.
