Marking of plastic bottles

Коды переработки

Plastic bottle - plastic container for the maintenance, protection and transportation of liquids. Plastic bottles give great convenience in their production, operation on filling lines, transportation of finished products in them, because their weight is up to ten times less than glass bottles, and they do not break. Plastic bottles are usually used to store liquids such as water, soft drinks, motor oils, vegetable oil, medicines, shampoos, milk, ink, beer and the like.

Two liters of water a day and a healthy diet - this is what modern people are striving for, aware of the danger of negligence towards their way of life.

Processing codes are special signs used to indicate the material from which the item is made and to simplify the sorting procedure before it is sent for recycling for reuse. Such signs are usually put on batteries, batteries, glass, metal, paper, plastic.

Natural food and clean water ensure that the aging of the body does not become impetuous, and immunity will be able to cope with the most common diseases. Unfortunately, even in such an ideal formula for health there is a catch: it is very important not only how much water is clean, but the products are ecological. The packaging in which all this is stored is important!

Plastic, from which most food packages and water bottles are made, is often of poor quality. He quietly kills people every day, and we do not even think about the danger.

Plastic packaging is so loved by all manufacturers, because it is cheap. The desire to earn more money on consumers is managed by many companies, and it's sad.

When the bottle is made of a material that can interact with water and release harmful toxic substances into it, the drink inside such a container turns into poison.

Plastic can cause cancer. The substances released by the plastic are very toxic - the body is poisoned, internal organs are littered with harmful compounds, and these factors inhibit immunity.

Problems with the liver and pancreas also often arise just because of the use of plastic packages!

Another trouble is hormonal failure, caused by carcinogenic mixtures. Using them in food involuntarily, taking food from unreliable plastic packaging or drinking water from it, you risk losing the correct hormonal balance.

Problems with the skin, mental disorders, body weakness, frequent infectious diseases - satellites of hormonal failure. To avoid these phenomena, treat the packages carefully: look what you buy!
