The sustainable way to reduce noise pollution and ocean pollution at the same time.
Every year, 8 million metric tons of plastics enter our oceans on top of the estimated 150 million metric tons that currently circulate our marine environments.
Whether by errant plastic bags/ or plastic straws winding their way into gutters or large amounts of mismanaged plastic waste streaming from rapidly growing economies, that’s equivalent to emptying a refuse truck full of plastic into the ocean every minute of every day for an entire year!
But did you also know that noise pollution is the primary cause of reduction in productivity and can contribute to stress and illness which can also contribute to absenteeism and continuous turnover of staff and students?
The typical noise level in an open plan office is 65 dB and shockingly that’s only 30 dB less than a lawnmower! And background noise, even at low levels, has been found to increase stress levels and undermine short-term memory, reading comprehension and willingness to engage with others.
But what does this have to do with ocean pollution? Soundtect is an acoustic manufacturer who has devised a solution to tackle both, by using third-generation post-consumer recycled plastic to create a wide range of acoustic solutions to reduce noise pollution. Not only are Soundtect products Global Green Tag certified for their sustainability but by having products which can also resemble wood beautifully, are also lessening the impact on the environment by offering a sustainable believable alternative to real wood in the process.
Lightweight, impact resistant and highly absorbent, Soundtect offers a huge range of products for both walls and ceilings which will reduce the reverberation and add a wow factor to any space.
Finalists for both Product of the year and Manufacturer of the year with Mix in 2022, Soundtect really understands the science behind the noise to deliver beautiful, high quality, effective products that will stand the test of time.
So, the solution is straight-forward; to balance the boom, restore the calm, and improve the cognitive performance of your team in a hard surfaced, open plan or high ceilinged building, more consideration needs to be given to noise dynamics and how you can reduce them with effective acoustic solutions, and if you also buy into the sustainable solutions offered by Soundtect, you are also lessening environmental pollution at the same time.
