    What does Plastic-free mean?

    Plastic-free literally means “free from plastic”. This movement, which in recent years and, in particular during 2019, has been catching everyone’s eyes (consumers, institutions and companies) is part of a historical moment that is bringing awareness to the issue of using disposable plastics products.

    Plastics production worldwide has increased from 2 million tonnes produced in the 1950s to 380 million tonnes in 2015, and is still continuing to grow.
    In fact, the production is expected to double in the next 20 years and even quadruple by 2050, the year in which the weight of plastic in the ocean will be equal to the weight of all fish. Moreover, the footprint production will be equal to 615 coal-fired power plants operating at full speed.

    How to get the Plastic-free certification?

    Sfridoo’s Plastic-free Certification is a practical and operational tool, built on solid research grounds. Through a study and specifications created by our internal staff and in compliance with the guidelines of the Ministry of the Environment in Italy, the company receives the necessary means to certify its corporate responsibility towards the environment, internal resources and everything within its premises.

      The first step is the company self-assessment to verify its commitment level. The company can make use of the suggestions described in the Plastic-free guide for their continuous improvement

      In the second step, Sfridoo receives the project documentation and the Plastic-free purchase options. The technicians of Sfridoo verify the material produced and prepare the internal company auditing

      The third step involves a visit to the company to verify the choice of suppliers, the green purchases made, and whether the guidelines are being followed

      The certificate is issued with annual validity, according to the different levels. The company is included in the online page dedicated only to Plastic-free companies

    Case study - Plastic-free certification and design service

    An important company with 300 employees, in the confectionery sector, located at Padua Province, Italy, has entrusted Sfridoo with the task of verifying the viability of creating such a project.

    After an initial evaluation, it was identified many opportunities for improvements in accordance with the standards defined at Sfridoo’s guide from 2019. Having this in mind, the company requested an intervention dedicated to the green procurement phase in order to improve their practices in two different internal areas: the recreation lounge and one department.

    Finally, the company received the Silver level of our Plastic-free certification, aiming to increase its efforts in the combat against disposable Plastics in order to, by next year, be at the Platinum level.


    The results?

    Saving on plastic: 2,160 kg
    Economical saving: € 32,640
