Labeling Plastic Bottles

Коды переработки

Plastic bottle - a plastic container for containing, protecting and transporting liquids. Plastic bottles give great convenience in their production, operation on bottling lines, transporting the finished product into them, since their weight is up to ten times less than glass bottles, and they do not break. Plastic bottles are typically used to store liquids such as water, soft drinks, motor oils, vegetable oils, medicines, shampoos, milk, ink, beer and the like.

Two liters of water per day and a healthy diet - this is what modern people strive for, aware of the danger of neglect of their lifestyle.

Recycling codes are special signs that are used to designate the material from which the item is made, and to simplify the sorting procedure before sending it for recycling. Such signs are usually placed on batteries, accumulators, products from glass, metal, paper, plastic.

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

The plastic that most food packaging and water bottles are made of is often of poor quality. He quietly kills people every day, and we don’t even think about the danger.

Plastic packaging is so loved by all manufacturers because it is cheap. The desire to make more money on consumers runs many companies, and this is sad.

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

Plastic can cause cancer. The substances secreted by plastic are very toxic - the body is poisoned, internal organs are clogged with harmful compounds, and these factors inhibit the immune system.

Problems with the liver and pancreas also often arise only due to the use of plastic packaging!

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

Skin problems, mental disorders, weakness of the body, frequent infectious diseases - satellites of hormonal failure. To avoid these phenomena, treat the packaging carefully: watch what you buy!
