Plastic Neutral Program
Everyone is looking for ways to eliminate single-use plastic usage and limit the use of plastic in general, however, we all know that plastic cannot be 100% avoided. Many if not all industries rely on plastic because of its flexibility, durability, light weight and inexpensive production costs. In many cases, industries rely on plastic because non-plastic alternatives are more environmentally damaging or the technological solutions for a sustainable alternative do not exist. For these reasons, RIO has started a program that offers companies the opportunity to establish their plastic footprint and reduce it by joining RIO in the collection of marine plastic and waste. This is certainly no excuse to be irresponsible with the plastic material still required for operations; by utilizing RIO’s Plastic Neutral Program, every organization will have the added bonus of partnering with RIO to help clean and restore our oceans for the marine life that call it home and future generations.
