Guy Malam, Managing Director explains why our move away from single-use plastics is a timely one:
“Environmental issues are now dominating the news agenda and we can all do better, we all need to make changes. Figures on plastic waste in the construction industry make for shocking reading. Plastics are finding their way into our seas and oceans and of those plastics that are sent to landfill, some take over a thousand years to breakdown in the soil and it’s time the construction industry faced up to the issue. Here at Tembe DIY we hope to move the industry away from single use plastics and change the market forever.”
We now offer a range of 14 ECO-PAC foils in Hippo sealants, adhesives and Filltite fillers. Their eco-friendly foil ‘sausage’ packaging negates the need to use plastic cartridges for sealants and adhesives. ECO-PACs are much better for the environment because they generate 96% less waste. They’re made from durable aluminium foil, and you can get up to 38% more product in an ECO-PAC for the same cost as a plastic cartridge. With left over waste no bigger than a few coins.
