Visit to Flight Plastics

Yesterday Dame Patsy visited Flight Plastics in Wellington to see how clear plastic, collected from around New Zealand, is cleaned, broken down, turned into sheeting and then made into packaging for food products. It is an example of the circular economy in action, as used food trays can in turn be returned to the plant to be recycled repeatedly.
