Plastic pallets are being preferred more and more over the traditional wood pallets and for all the right reasons. Some salient benefits of using plastic pallets:
- Saves floor space
- Reduces freight charges
- Lasts 10 times longer than wood thereby saving more money
- 30% lighter than wood which makes it easy and fast to carry
- Easy to clean
- No nails, slinters, or sharp edges
- Water and fire resistant
- Bacteria and germs free
But there is one thing that probably beats all of the above and that is the fact that you can recycle plastic pallets. There is a very strong need for the world to cut down on their usage of wood. Wood pallets cannot be recycled as they are made from wood. You need to cut down trees in order to manufacture them. This is not an eco-friendly way of manufacturing pallets.
Plastic on the other hand can be recycled easily. Apart from all the benefits that were mentioned above, this one is probably the most crucial one of all. Plastic is an artificial and man-made product that can be recycled endlessly.
Though the initial cost of procuring plastic pallet is higher than wood pallets, plastic pallets are technically maintenance free. Plastic pallets manufactured by Exporta Global are not only eco-friendly, but also recyclable.
For example, the Rackable plastic pallet manufactured by Exporta Global is made from "Black Recycled PE Material". Similarly heavy duty plastic pallets are also built from the same material. Every single plastic pallet built using recycled material is helping you meet your recycling needs, and helps you do your part in contributing to the task of protecting mother earth.
Most of these plastic pallets are manufactured from the highest quality of recycled plastic such as high-density polyethylene and polypropylene (HDPE) and Commingled-baled scrap from car bumpers made of thermoplastic polyurethane plastics (TPU) and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene thermoplastics (ABS). These are tried and tested methods that consistently produce solid results.
After you have used the plastic pallet for its entire lifecycle, these same plastic pallets can also be used to manufacture other plastic related products such as bumpers, chairs, tables, and other such products. Plastic is a widely used product and you can easily melt and mold it into pretty much anything.
So it is highly recommended and quite evident based on the profound data that you should choose plastic pallets over their wooden counterparts. It may seem that you are paying more for the plastic pallets in the beginning, but they are actually cheaper and stronger than any other pallet type. Plus you are doing your bit in protecting your planet and staying green. Recycling critical and sensible, and Exporta Global is doing an excellent of job of using only recycled plastic materials to manufacture their pallet related products that the shipping industry relies on.
