What is PCR Plastic?

Post-consumer recycled plastic, often referred to as PCR Plastics, is material that is made from the items that consumers use every day, like Plastic bottles, Plastic tubes, and various other plastic items. These materials are typically collected by local recycling programs and shipped to recycling facilities to be sorted into bales, based on the material. The bales are then purchased and melted (or ground) into small pellets and molded into new items. The new PCR plastic material can then be used for a variety of finished products, including packaging.

PCR plastic, or post-consumer recycled plastic, is important for several reasons:

Reduces waste: PCR plastic helps reduce the amount of plastic waste that ends up in landfills, oceans, and other natural environments. By reusing plastic materials that have already been discarded, we can significantly reduce the environmental impact of plastic consumption.


Conserves resources: Manufacturing new plastic requires significant amounts of energy and natural resources. By using PCR plastic, we can reduce the demand for these resources and help conserve them for future generations.


Lowers carbon footprint: Producing new plastic contributes to greenhouse gas emissions, which contribute to climate change. Using PCR plastic reduces the need for new plastic production, thereby lowering the carbon footprint associated with plastic consumption.


Encourages sustainable practices: By supporting the use of PCR plastic, we encourage more sustainable practices in the plastic industry. This can lead to increased innovation in recycling and reuse, as well as greater awareness of the importance of reducing plastic waste.


Overall, the use of PCR plastic is an important step toward creating a more sustainable and environmentally responsible future. It helps reduce waste, conserve resources, lower carbon footprint and encourages more sustainable practices in the plastic industry.
