We are very responsible approach to the issue of environmental protection and preservation of Russia's natural resources. Frosta protects our country's forest from cutting down, restoring and returning thousands of used pallets daily. The continuing development of the consumption structure requires from suppliers more pallets for their products.
According to the NWPCA (American National Association of Manufacturers of Wooden Pallets and Containers), about 2 billion pallets are used in the United States today, at least 0.5 billion pallets are produced annually. About 150 million pallets are recycled annually in the United States.
Despite the fact that Russian statistics do not contain consolidated data on the volume of production and disposal of pallets in the country, the volume of timber annually cut for the production of pallets and other types of wooden packaging is enormous.
According to wood consumption, pallet production is in second place after construction. Today, the world practice shows that wooden pallets are often not thrown out after the first or second use. If the pallets are well made and used neatly, they can be used for several more years.
We pay the most attention in our activities for the purchase, repair, pre-sale preparation and the return of used wooden containers (mainly pallets). Most of the pallets supplied by our Company are returned to circulation, which contributes to:
- reduction of volumes that are unusable for further use and ejected into garbage / recycled pallets;
- reduction of the degree of damage to the environment during waste disposal;
- reduction of the need for deforestation and harvesting sawnwood for the production of pallets and, accordingly, prevents damage to plants and animals inhabiting forests;
- reduction of the need for areas allocated for landfills;
- reduction of CO2 in the atmosphere, which contributes to the fight against global warming (saved from deforestation actively absorb CO2 gas, which are one of the main causes of the greenhouse effect and, as a consequence, global warming).
