U.S. leading tarps supplier Tarps Plus has started a tarps recycling program that will help keep less plastic in trash fills.
Most of us are guilty of throwing out old tarps in the trash, knowing that we could be ruining the environment in the process. However, this behavior has been angering many environmentalists, since this leads to even more pollution. Fortunately, people are now realizing that certain types of these items are actually recyclable.
One tarps company has decided to do something. Tarps Plus, the leading tarps supplier in North America has decided to start a tarp recycling program. The tarp company plans to give discounts for people who recycle their old tarps.
A spoke person from Tarps Plus stated, “A tarp is a plastic based product. If we can get people to recycle the tarps instead of throwing them in the trash, we will be doing a good thing.”
A tarp can be used for nearly anything. For instance, they are commonly used on building sites to protect projects in progress from adverse weather conditions. They are also used by some people to create cheap, yet sturdy and weatherproof, tents.
In some countries, relief workers use tarps to set up camps that allow them to dispense much needed supplies to surrounding communities.
Until recently, most people would use the tarp for a short while and then throw it away. This is because people oftentimes cannot be bothered to wash the tarp, so that it can be reused. Also, cheaper or low quality products may become damaged and useless, so they must be discarded.
Tarps Plus has now announced that they would like consumers to use their products more wisely. For instance, they are urging consumers to purchase high quality products that will last or to invest in poly tarp products.
The benefit of investing in the poly type of tarp is that it is recyclable. If you own a tarp that is made of polyethylene, you can recycle it. This will prevent it from ending up in a landfill.
Poly tarps are very easy to find and if you purchase the right kind, it will be very durable. This type of tarp comes in a range of colors and sizes, so there are many reasons to be a more responsible tarp shopper.
