Is Plastic Molding Bad For The Environment?

Plastic has been a concern for a long time, with many claiming that it has very negative effects to the environment. However, plastic molding helps to keep waste levels down, keeping plastics out of landfills and disposal centers.


Firstly, why is plastic considered bad for the environment? Plastics take a long time to break down, which leads to quickly filling up landfills if it just dumped there after a short time being used. So making more plastic products would be bad wouldn’t it?

Not necessarily. Plastic molding is a very low waste process which reuses almost all waste products. Plastics can be remoulded into new products once they are used, keeping them out of landfills and making them useful once again. By recycling plastic products, plastic moulding actually helps the environment by keeping plastics in use rather than in the landfills.
