A better process for plastic

Plastic is used in everything from water bottles to peanut packaging. And even though recycling plastic can be profitable, every year, thousands of businesses waste money by treating it as unsalvageable waste. In addition to potential revenue opportunities, recycling plastic can help you drive brand affinity thanks to your sustainable practices.

  • Americans throw away 2.5 million plastic bottles every hour
  • Recycling one ton of plastic bottles saves the equivalent energy usage of a two-person household for a year
  • Five plastic bottles (PET) recycled provides enough fiber to create one square feet of carpet or to fill one ski jacket
