Don Antonio Pacini, our founder, mentioned at the premiere of the Group’s Sustainability Report that “all of us are the protagonists of circular economy” and that it is everyone´s duty to teach at home, in schools, and even at work to reduce, reuse and recycle, but how are we doing it?
We implemented Plastilene University as an internal training program to innovate in our processes; we work with our customers in eco-design, thinking about closing the cycle of materials (less inks, less materials, less printing areas, etc.); we support suppliers in the incorporation of sustainable practices; we participate in academic scenarios, sharing our knowledge and with the end user we build synergies, as Circular Movement.
A year ago we decided to join the Circular Movement as partners, an educational initiative that links communities and companies to accelerate the transition from the linear economy (produce, consume and dispose) to circular economy, in search of a world without waste.
The idea of the Circular Movement is to promote processes, products and attitudes in favor of circularity, from the following:
Since 2020, the Circular Movement has managed to impact more than 700 thousand people, consolidate 47 alliances in Brazil, Argentina, Colombia and Mexico, and add dozens of initiatives on the map. Furthermore, a year ago they managed to have 1,000 enrollments in their educational platform and, consequently, to be a media reference.
Undoubtedly, all of us are protagonists of circular economy, because regardless of our profession or occupation, it is possible to adapt it contributing to a world without waste.
In our case, we move towards plastic circularity with a sum of actions as simple as sponsoring a recycler, directly delivering plastic packaging without contaminating; spreading messages of correct separation in the environment; adopting sustainable consumption habits and implementing forms of production, which take into account the rational use of resources. Get involved, you are part of the solution!
