“For the plastics industry, every day is America Recycles Day,” said PLASTICS President and CEO Matt Seaholm. “Our industry is dedicated to recycling which is why we work tirelessly to improve recyclability and invest billions of dollars into new technologies to recycle.
“Recycling is real, and the plastics industry is proud to be a part of the solution, but we need to do more. We need partners at all levels, including government, the private sector and communities working together to recycle even more valuable materials every day,” concluded Seaholm.
Recently, PLASTICS launched an advocacy campaign, Recycling is Real, dedicated to promoting and defending plastic recycling in America. The campaign provides content to help elected officials and policymakers understand that recycling is a vital link of the sustainability and circularity chain, enabling them to make more well-informed decisions about recycling resources for their constituents.
