Making Sustainable Change

For a better tomorrow, we’re advocating for smarter plastic recycling policies today.

Circular Economy

The old way of making things – make, use, discard – is not sustainable.  

We’re transitioning towards a more circular economy, in which plastic is reused instead of discarded. Make, use, reuse. Which helps keep plastics out of our environment and reduces our use of fossil resources. 

Reusing materials like plastic can improve sustainability and have a hugely positive impact on our environment. 

Circularity is not a passing fad,
it's our future.

5 Actions for Sustainable Change

To create a circular economy, we could use some commonsense public policies. Smart public policies that support innovation and investments in infrastructure… investments that help keep plastics in our economy and out of our environment.

To get the ball rolling, we have a plan of action for Congress. We call it: 5 Actions for Sustainable Change. It’s a plan for Congress to accelerate a circular economy for plastic.

Here’s what we’re doing…

Making Sustainable Change

We’re also finding new ways to make plastic lighter, stronger, more efficient and dependable… and more recyclable.

Plus driving down greenhouse gas emissions from products and production. Circularity is not a passing fad. We’re creating innovative, sustainable solutions that lead to a cleaner, safer, healthier future.

Advanced Recycling

These technologies turn used plastics into their molecular building blocks to be remade into brand-new plastic. Again and again.

Over the past few years, ~$7 billion in advanced recycling investments have been announced. These investments could potentially divert 17 billion pounds of waste from landfill each year.

These technologies can tackle hard-to-recycle plastics – such as flexible wraps, tubes, pouches and foams – and remake them into brand new plastics. This will help us recycle more of the 90% of plastics that do not get recycled today.

International Agreement on Plastic Pollution

Countries across the world are negotiating an agreement to end plastic pollution. We believe a well-crafted agreement would unlock innovation and global investments needed to create the infrastructure to recycle more of the world’s plastic.

The story of plastic is evolving. And we’re writing a new chapter. It’s called Making Sustainable Change. Watch Now ↓
