SIA Flexitanks Plant A Tree Project
SIA Flexitanks were delighted to get involved in the One Million Trees in One Day Project in Ireland.
The trees on the land project is a seasonal fixture on farms and in communities across the island. Trees on the Land is a cross-border initiative working to establish young native trees across the 32 counties of the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
The ‘Plant a Tree’ project aligns with our commitment to a sustainable environment. Operating around the world, SIA Flexitanks remain committed to continually minimizing our environmental impact globally. We continue to meet environmental standards and continue to recover and recycle materials where practical and environmentally beneficial to do so. Find out more about our plans for a Sustainable Flexitank Environment.
We are happy to say that our colleagues in Italy, Malaysia, Houston, Rotterdam and New Zealand also joined in and planted trees in support of the project. Take a look at Team SIA taking part in the project in the gallery below:
Reduce Your Carbon Footprint with Flexitanks
Flexitanks offer a sustainable solution to bulk liquid shipping than that of alternative methods of transportation such as Drums and IBC totes. Using flexitanks is one of the quickest and easiest ways to reduce the carbon footprint of the transport process.
In an interview with FreightWaves, SIA CEO, Damien McClean reinforced this message, citing an example of bulk wine shipping, “You’ll get 9,000 bottles of wine into a 20-foot container. In a flexitank, the 24,000 liters it holds, is the equivalent to around 30,000 bottles” FreightWaves also emphasized environmentalism to be a major issue for bulk transport of liquor by sea.
SIA Flexitanks Re-usable containers allow for zero waste in shipping allowing you to reduce your carbon footprint. Recycling is a viable option for the majority of flexitanks, which are made from Polyethylene, an oil-based product. As a member of the COA, SIA Flexitanks are already compliant with environmental standard ISO 14001.
