We know reusing is better. Some people use door step milk delivery not only to support their local milkman but also because your empties are reused. Before plastics salesmen invaded Europe glass was the packaging of choice for liquids and many other products. Reuse therefore was common practise. Not any more.
The plastics invasion has spawned a whole host of small to medium sized businesses looking to make use of all the recycled plastics. One such company is Smile Plastics.
Recycled plastics sheets have been used extensively all over the world including the Idèe showroom and golf driving range roofing in Japan (Klein Dytham), Body Shop and Blanco fashion shops throughout Spain (Fern Green). The Science Museum, Design Museum, V & A and the Tate Gallery have all used it in different capacities. Images here.
