recycling one ton of Polystyrene (Plastic #6) saves



  1. 0 Votes

    Plastic #6 is the most harmful plastic on the market due to the products tendency to leach.  The leached BPA from the product has estrogenic effects in human bodies which can lead to hormone disruption.  Polystyrene recycling is not effective because the product cannot be used over again.  The only effective polystyrene recycling program is the one used for packing peanuts. 

    I haven’t been able to come across any statistic about the resources saved from recycling packing peanuts, but polystyrene recycling as a whole saves a minimal amount of resources.  The truth is, plastic #6 should be phased out of production completely.
