Consider Your Carbon Footprint

Our increasing carbon footprint is having profound effects on the environment.

We must all take responsibility and consider our own carbon footprint.With this in mind, Aeroplas as market leaders were determined to develop their curb-side recyclable pot ranges from UK post-consumer waste. The majority of our material is made up of single use plastics that the UK consumer has sent for recycling. We have also considerably reduced our carbon footprint by sourcing our materials from within the UK. On top of that, virtually all of our products are manufactured in the West Midlands again greatly reducing our carbon footprint in comparison to our European competitors.
