This is from Shep11 at Flickr. Todd Shepherd is the business owner of Shepherd Thermoforming which is in Ontario Canada. Thermoforming is the manufacturing process using heat in molding plastic. Todd explains that "There is a problem in NA with PET packaging in the recycling stream. The only easily recognizeable PET is in the form of bottles. All other clear packaging could be PVC, OPS or some other polymer which will create problems if mixed with PET in the reprocessing equipment. The sorting process in homes and institutions is unreliable even with the help of the recycling symbol visible on most plastic packaging. Equipment is now coming on stream that will optically sort these polymers automatically and direct them to seperate streams which will then make plastic recycling a profitable venture, ease the environmental issues and reduce the negativity towards plastic packaging."
Always looking for the creativity in Life. I live in Plant City, Florida with my two sons(Ari and Andrew), my husband Jon, and Spooky our cat and Max our crazy dog.In my spare time I enjoy blogging and reading a good book , and Look forward to family summer vacations at the cottage in Michigan and some day will get to travel the world.
While I'm on my own creative journey, In my free time, I'm writing about things I love and enjoy, mostly creativity, things that hopefully inspire others and bring hope and joy. As I fight against following the EGO, I'm trying to live authentically and follow where the Muse takes me. I was lucky enough to travel as a child and be surrounded by talented, sweet people and know the struggles and frustrations of following the roads less traveled., so this is just me having fun enjoying the journey :-)
