NELMAR and the environment

All NELMAR products are category 4 recyclable. NELMAR believes that a comprehensive recycling program will result in a reduction of overall plastic production due to the reusability of the material. We dismiss the notion of degradability and instead invoke the mantra: REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE.

Plastic made with degradable additives has negative implications for the recycling world. Degradable plastics are difficult to recycle in many environments, and by using them, you are merely promoting the production of more plastic. In order to fill demand, manufacturers will be forced to compensate for the lack of recyclable plastic by producing more virgin plastic.
