Dog waste, bags and biodegradable – what does it all mean?
There are many possibilities such as compostable, biodegradable, and degradable but what is the difference? We use dog waste bags as a case study to explain, as some people assume they can be thrown at the side of the path or in the hedge.
Trashion – the impact of textile waste
The impact created by the manufacturing of fast fashion is significant, with millions of tonnes of waste created of which less than 1% is reused and the vast majority sent to landfill. We can help you understand your impact.
Why durability and recyclability are key for our textile future
Each year the equivalent of 11.3kg of textile is discarded by each person in the EU amounting to around 5.8 million tonnes of textiles. Eurofins Sustainability Services support this perspective and are developing new services to help our customers reduce their impacts.
Sustainable chemistry is the future of our planet
Chemistry is the fundamental building block of all things and is here to stay, but we must manage and understand how we use chemicals in a way which protects our planet.
