What cookies, pasta and plastics (now) have in common
When making cookies or homemade pasta, it’s natural to reuse scraps of leftover dough by adding them to fresh dough. Similar scraps are generated during the production of plastic films. Putting this »dough« to the same good circular use is difficult, however – unless it’s »sprinkled« with one of our special EcoCircle additives.
