Even though plastic lasts nearly forever in our planet’s waste stream, as a consumer product it’s typically only used once before discarding. The biggest contributor to plastic waste is the food and beverage packaging industry. The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) reports that in 2019 alone, 460 million tons of discarded plastic was generated from items like single-use plastic bottles, food containers, and bags.
Why Recycled Plastic?
What is GRS certification?
The Global Recycled Standard (GRS) is a voluntary product standard for tracking and verifying the content of recycled materials in a final product. The standard applies to the full supply chain and addresses traceability, environmental principles, social requirements, chemical content and labeling. ZEITMANUFAKTUR manufactures recycled plastic watches with verifiable certificates.
With GRS certification, you can communicate to customers your commitment to truth in materials and support for a circular economy that reduces waste by using it to make new products.
Invest in our planet!
The manufacture of new products from plastic waste is an important contribution to the circular economy, while at the same time actively avoiding plastic.
For many consumers sustainability has become an important purchasing criterion.
The use of recycled plastic is still rather rare in the watch industry.
