PCR plastic is made from plastic we already have and it’s both cost-effective and environmentally friendly. By using what we already struggle to get rid of to protect the planet, manufacturers gain an affordable option for their packaging.
Reprocessing existing plastics uses less energy and fossil fuels. Overall, the environment is saved from excess pollution and wasted resources while manufacturers are still able to produce a viable, durable new plastic bottle.
PCR is also a readily available material, with plenty of opportunities to improve community recycling programs while providing a steady supply of recycled products.
