28 Dec Single Use & Disposable Plastics
During the course of 2018, Argent Scientific has discontinued the use of most single use, disposable plastics and changed to glass, metal & reusable plastic (e.g. Nalgene) alternatives.
We have invested heavily in materials, tools and containers which will not only reduce landfill waste, but also costs and logistical issues associated with waste disposal.
We are now only using disposable plastics for weighing but will change to paper or glass alternatives once our existing stocks of disposable plastics are depleted.
This is both a financial and environmentally-oriented decision; single-use plastics are more expensive long term, and far worse for the environment.
