Our Lasting Commitment

With much attention being focused upon the problems associated with the disposal of single-use plastics, we are happy to assure all of our customers that the high quality, premium products available from theplasticshop.co.uk are, in nearly all cases, fully recyclable.


Plastic is the modern miracle upon which much of society’s present-day material benefits are founded – of which you as a user will be all too well aware. It provides a cost-effective, lightweight, highly durable, performance-driven and reliable solution across a wide range of manufacturing, construction, retail and service industries. Its main attribute is that it’s made to last. This, however, can become something of a disadvantage should it end up in the wrong place and at the wrong time; and particularly so once a single-use plastic application has fulfilled its primary purpose (think drinks bottle, cigarette butts and food wrappers).

Such a valuable and useful resource should not be unnecessarily written off as “waste”. Nor is there any technical reason why the greater proportion of it should. So rather than wholly taking measures to restrict and eventually curtail the availability of single-use plastic materials, we support government policy which provides a far more positive initiative by putting in place a properly managed infrastructure to ensure their recovery and reuse.

This is a view that is widely shared throughout the supply chain. However, as a distributor exclusively of fully reusable plastic products it’s one that we take more as an interested observer to the ongoing debate over single-use plastics rather than as an active participant. Generally, our materials are intended for longer term applications and often used for many months and years, bringing significant cost benefits and advantages to the project in hand.

Our own focus - and one that is reflected within a lasting commitment to existing and prospective users of any of those products available from theplasticshop.co.uk - is to ensure that they should not just match your expectations, but exceed them in terms of quality, performance, price and fitness for purpose.

It’s also good to know that after you’ve made use of them they will normally have a further opportunity to be sustainably re-purposed in order to provide an equally useful service elsewhere! By prior arrangement and agreement, we will accept most of our materials back at the end of their useful life, to ensure they are recycled through our authorised channels.
