Resource: Buy Recycled Products Directory
Resource: PCR Product Vendors Directory
Post-consumer recycled plastics (PCR) benefit the environment and contribute to a circular economy, where innovation leads to the development of new products from a wide array of recyclable packaging and other items which vary by resin, format, and current recycling infrastructure. While plastics are often remanufactured back to their original form, such as bottle to bottle recycling, they can also be reshaped for use in high-value, enduring, and useful applications including drainage pipes, railroad ties, car parts, carpet, decking, park benches, and other non-packaging items.
Attend this webinar to learn about the current supply and demand for recycled plastics, how we can boost demand to support a robust market, and the benefits of diverse applications for PCR.
