Plastic no more

Plastic No More is a project entailing tangible actions to reduce the use of plastics by 30% - that is 677 tons less every year (considering the 2017 figures about plastic consumption) - by 2020. The project was launched in 2018, and is developed by Olitalia Group in partnership with the Zoological Station “Anton Dohrn” of Naples at the forefront, represented by its scientific coordinator - Professor Silvestro Greco - followed by other important players such as Slow Food International, the University of Gastronomic Sciences of Pollenzo, Polieco, Coripet.
The Plastic No More project has also created a plastic bottle recovery and recycling chain that increases the use of recycled and reused PET. At the same time, the project is testing new biodegradable and/or compostable materials that can replace bottles, caps and other packaging.

THE COMPANY'S GREEN PATH

Olitalia’s eco-sustainable path has led it to undertake the Plastic No More project.

Sustainability and trying to limit its environmental impact are part of the company’s DNA. For example, from July 2018, 100% of our supply of purchased electricity comes from renewable sources. Two photovoltaic systems provide total power of 377.85 KW. From an environmental point of view, every KW produced by a photovoltaic source avoids burning 0.25 kg of oil and the emission of 0.3-0.7 kg of CO2 into the atmosphere. Starting from November 2018, we began the process of replacing our production plant lighting with an LED system, a project that will be completed during 2019 and be extended to include warehouses and new office space currently under construction.

ELIMINATE DISPOSABLE PLASTIC USE

In line with the recent European Parliament rules abolishing single-use plastic items, Olitalia aims to reduce the use of plastic mainly in finished product packaging through weight reduction, R-PET and biodegradable alternatives. Moreover, within the company offices, disposable plastic materials such as glasses, plates, cutlery, and straws have been eliminated. Vending machines no longer offer plastic bottles, while hot drinks are served in paper cups with wooden stirrers.
