Pounds of Plastic Diverted from Landfills
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.
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.

San Diego resident Matthew Clough was shocked to witness huge quantities of plastic film discarded in the trash each week at the power sports dealership where he worked. To address this issue, he assembled a passionate team committed to preventing the materials from ending up in landfills.
