In the U.S. 1.6 million tons of hazardous household waste is generated per year. The unfortunate situation is that there are no regulations for household waste because it’s impossible to regulate household waste! Moreover, there is no easy solution for household hazardous waste.
In the U.S. alone, we generate 1.3 billion gallons of waste oil each year - 800 million gallons are recycled and 500 million are disposed of improperly. Americans who change their own motor oil throw away 180 million gallons of motor oil every year, only 20 million gallons are recycled. The problem here is significant because just one gallon of used motor oil contaminates 1 million gallons of fresh water, and it only takes one pint of used motor oil to put an oil sheen on a one acre pond.
The latest EPA statistics show that about 208 million tons of municipal solid waste was generated in the U.S. This means each person generated an average of 4.3 pounds of solid waste per day. What does this tell us about our current efforts to resolve this issue? Unfortunately, “Reduce, reuse, and recycle” isn’t good enough.
We have the technology and solution to allow for biodegration of oilwaste and other toxic chemicals that align with most individual habits.It’s cheaper and more convenient for everyone to throw kitty liter on some old oil,put it in a plastic bag, and throw it away – in fact, this is the standard even in the fleet industry.
SustainableLifestyle Brands resolves the issue of solid waste as well with the technology and solution that fits in with consumerhabits of throwing things away. Our biodegradable resin allows for biodegrationof plastics in an anaerobic environment. Much of the “biodegradable plastics”are oxo-biodegradable, which biodegrade on the shelf, not the landfill.
