Consumers and companies can both contribute to the circular economy and stimulate market demand by purchasing recycled plastics. The Foundation for Plastic Recycling, established by APR, recently launched a Buy Recycled initiative to educate and encourage consumers to rethink their everyday purchases, and buy products made with recycled content. The APR Recycling Demand Champion Campaign, recently announced the impact of a successful third year. The intent of this program is two-fold: to drive end-market demand for PCR and to recognize companies for their increased investment in PCR-containing products. Businesses, government entities, universities and more can participate, and through their participation they become APR Recycling Demand Champions. Learn about The Foundation for Plastic Recycling, these two important campaigns, and how you can support the growth of plastics recycling on multiple levels.
