What Programs are Supporting these efforts?

 

Picture1APR knows that consistent, reliable demand for recycled plastic is critical for recycling to be mature, vibrant and sustainable. APR also knows that a strong demand-pull for recycled plastics is needed to ensurea robust recycling supply chain. https://plasticsrecycling.org/recycling-demand-champions

Picture2The Wrap Recycling Action Program (WRAP) is a national public awareness and outreach initiative designed to make plastic film – including wraps, bags, and flexible packaging – a commonly recycled material with a strong and ever-growing recycling rate. https://www.plasticfilmrecycling.org/recycling-bags-and-wraps/wrap-consumer-content/

Picture6This Collaborative’s mission is to work together to identify opportunities and best practices for using recycled content in durable goods and in packaging. The committee will develop partnerships, commitments and success strategies that members can implement inside their organization. https://sustainablepackaging.org/collaboratives/next-markets/

Picture7Often people think of recycling as tossing their soda bottles in their blue bins and calling it a day. But recycling is more than a single action. It is a complex process that starts before the consumer even receives the product. It begins with material selection and product design, through responsible disposal where it enters into a network of parties who collect, transport, process, and ultimately reuse the material in new products. https://www.plasticsindustry.org/supply-chain/recycling-sustainability/new-end-market-opportunities-nemo

Picture8The Recycled Material Standard (RMS) enables participating brands and suppliers to celebrate their sustainability efforts that collectively advance the use of recycled materials. The standard establishes requirements necessary to assure accuracy and transparency of claims with the support of a robust third party certification system. https://sustainablepackaging.org/projects/recycled-material-standard-rms/
