Meridian's Environmental Commitment
We are proud of our dedication to reduce waste in our landfill.
Plastics are a highly valuable material that play an essential role in modern economy, however they can be very harmful when simply thrown away or left in the environment. In landfill, a plastic bag can take anywhere from 10-100 years to degrade, where sunlight, air and moisture are scarce. Outside of landfill, plastic waste is harmful to the environment, wildlife and even humans. But when plastic is recycled properly, it is a resource that can be used to benefit both our economy and environment.
95% of our scrap plastic is recycled in house.
The Meridian Way
At Meridian, we are proud to recycle 100% of our plastic waste. Scrap plastic is fed through our recycling machine in-house to revert back into plastic pellets for use in non-food grade applications. This means we are able to re-use our plastic waste for good and avoid it ending up in landfill.
We are proud to deliver innovative and affordable products and solutions that won’t cost the earth. Meridian is the smart choice for a sustainable future.
Our Commitment To Supporting Renewable Energy
At Meridian we take our commitment to the environment seriously and proudly do whatever we can to create a sustainable future for everyone. Our factory roof is made up of 190 individual solar panels which create almost 60 kilowatts of electricity. On a sunny day we are able to produce enough electricity to run our entire factory, while adding excess power back into the grid. Each year we produce between 80 and 90 megawatt hours which equates to a reduction of greenhouse emissions into the environment by 60-80 tonnes. Overall, our solar panels provide us two thirds of the total daytime energy required to run our factory each year.
