RETAIL PLASTIC IS PROBLEMATIC

The Problem | Unrecycled Soft Plastic

Retailers use huge volumes of High & Low-Density Polyethylene that consumers never see. It’s used in items like: pre-wrap on merchandise, plastic shopping bags, bubble wrap, and plastic packing pillows. While HD/LDPE is very widely used, but it’s not widely recycled — even though it is 100% recyclable. It’s tendency to tangle in recycling machinery means municipalities often don’t accept it for pickup, leaving companies to deal with the materials themselves.

Pile of Garbage

Why is it such a problem? 

Simply put, there's hasn't been an accessible pipeline to recycle it correctly.

Why can't it go in a standard recycling bin?

Unfortunately, because soft plastic has a tendency to tangle in machinery, most Materials Recovery Facilities (MRFs) or Recycling Centers are not equipped to recycle it - so it ends up in landfills.

SOLUTION | RESPONSIBLE COLLECTION

We partner with large corporations and small businesses to effectively collect, remove and recycle plastic wrap, addressing the issue at its source to significantly reduce it’s negative environmental impact.

Through strategic partnerships, community engagement, and the dedication of our volunteers, we work tirelessly to implement sustainable practices. Our approach is not only eco-friendly but also economically viable, creating a win-win situation for both businesses and the environment.
