Global Warming is the greatest environmental issue in thepresent time which is caused by huge amount of wastes that are being burned indumpsites that contribute to emission of substances that affect the ozonelayer. Since population every year increases, more resources are used, thus, morewastes are being produced.
Some peoplerecycle plastics to create new products to be sold or to be reused. Usually theplastics being recycled are examples of polyethylene terephthalate (PET). PETbottles are transparent in color and are easier to process because these arethinner than HDPE or High Density Polyethylene. Therefore, it is concluded thatHDPE bottles are harder to dispose than PET bottles.
Morethan 8 million tons of HDPE are used toward blow-molded containers such as milkjugs, juice containers, detergent bottles, motor oil bottles, trash bins, etc.(RecycledPlastic, 2014). It’s stronger than standard polyethylene and it actsas an effective barrier against moisture and remains solid at room temperature(Engineered Plastic Systems, LLC, 2015).
