Recycling is one of the most effective ways to protect and conserve our natural resources, contributing to a healthier environment. Consider recycling products and use suppliers committed to sustainable recycling practices. Here are some important recycling benefits.
Recycling Helps Protect Biodiversity
Recycling helps to conserve our planet’s resources such as water, minerals, coal, oil, gas and timber. It also prevents the loss of biodiversity and ecosystems by reducing air, land and water pollution. This is important to maintain for the benefit of future generations.
Recycling contributes to a substantial energy saving in the long run, which results in fewer greenhouse emissions and thus less pollution affecting the environment. Constant product recycling and the use of renewable resources are among the most effective way to reduce pollution and protect biodiversity on a global scale.
Recycling Reduces Waste
Recycling reduces the size of waste landfills, decreasing pollution and further strain on the environment. Recycling paper, wood and plastic creates less new products made using these resources, saving trees and forests and cutting back on land and ocean pollution.
When recycling, less raw materials are needed to engage in new production. For example, recycling plastic means that less new plastic needs to undergo manufacturing, which can be a toxic and polluting process depending on the production and the type of plastic resin used.
Zero Waste to Landfill
Isowall manufactures expanded polystyrene (EPS) products, which is a 100% sustainable and recyclable material. The waste obtained on-site from the manufacturing process is going through an approved ‘zero waste to landfill’ management initiative to be recycled and reused. This considerably reduces waste landfill.
At Isowall Group, we are committed to the reuse of old or discarded materials to create new products and thus saving energy and reducing waste. For example, our Isowood dado rails and skirting boards are produced using recycled EPS scrap as an alternative to hardwood.

Isowall Group has been certified as complying with ISO 14001:2015 environmental and ISO 9001:2015 quality standards.
Isowall recycles responsibly. Hebcooler – a range of EPS Cups and Tubs under the Isolite brand – is 100% recyclable. The scrap from the manufacturing of Hebcooler EPS Cups and Tubs and any returned polystyrene are used to make Isowood dado rails and skirting boards.
