We’re finding new ways to make plastics lighter, stronger and more efficient.
By making plastics more recyclable we are also helping to further drive down greenhouse gas emissions.
All while we continue to create the essential products we need to build a more sustainable infrastructure for our loved ones today and for future generations.
We are committed to creating sustainable solutions throughout the plastic lifecycle.
Packaging is one of the largest uses of plastic. And packaging too often finds its way into the environment. To keep plastic packaging out of the environment, it must be properly managed and designed in a way to make it readily recoverable from the waste stream for recycling or reuse. As a nation, we must achieve this goal before we can reach for goal number two.
This stretch goal fully embraces our drive toward a circular economy for plastic, in which these materials are kept in productive use for as long as possible and then repurposed instead of discarded. Achieving this goal requires better packaging design, effective ways for Americans to collect used packaging, and new technologies, such as advanced plastic recycling, to reuse, recycle or recover packaging.
Stay in the loop and help us create a future for plastic that doesn't include waste.
