Fantastic Plastics : Fantastic Plastics 2011
Governmental regulatory agencies around the world including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Health Canada (HC), the European Food Safety Agency (EFSA), the United Kingdom Food Standards Agency (UKFSA) and the Japanese Ministry for Health (JMH) have all approved the material Tupperware uses in every single product line. Plastic and the environment Plastic has not only changed our lives, but has also had an impact on the environment. Like any other manufactured product, the production and use of plastic generates waste and pollution. However, by using good quality, reusable plastics such as Tupperware, you are reducing the amount of waste that ends up in landfill. Every Tupperware product must pass rigorous performance and durability testing under the most extreme usage conditions before it is approved for sale. The outcome of this commitment to quality and longevity is products for you and your family to enjoy for many years, and quite probably pass on to the next generation, rather than contribute to landfill. Tupperware products that end up damaged or that are unwanted can be returned to Tupperware to be ground up and recycled into plant pots, low grade pipes, builder’s film and garbage bags. Tupperware is not only relentless about the quality of its products, but also the manufacturing process. Every step in the process, beginning with the selection of raw materials, complies with Government regulations and environmental management systems. 8
