PLASTEON Certified Post Consumer (PCR) Recycled High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) and Ocean Bound Plastic HDPE Pellets

Birch Plastics Inc. is an ISO 9001:2015 Certified Sustainable Recycled Plastic Resin Manufacturer. With over 20 years of Plastic Recycling experience, Birch Plastics understands the challenges of using HDPE recycled plastic and the demands by the consumer, boardrooms, and government mandates to foster ways to use more.

Our PLASTEON Sustainable Plastic Resin product line would not be complete unless Birch offered Post Consumer HDPE to keep up with the evolving demand to repurpose used plastic waste and continue to focus on diverting good reusable plastics from landfills.

Why use Recycled Plastic in your products?

Utilizing PLASTEON Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) HDPE allows companies to help contribute to resource conservation by using recycled HDPE Plastic to make their branded products. This lets the companies demonstrate a commitment to helping conserve natural resources and decreasing the environmental impact associated with the need to use 100% virgin plastic resin.

Using PLASTEON Post-Consumer Recycled HDPE helps divert plastic waste from landfills and reduces the amount of plastic pollution in the environment. This also aligns with a circular economic approach, where materials are reused, recycled, and kept in the economic system for multiple uses.

Certified Ocean Bound Plastic High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) Plastic Resin Pellets

We must all do our part to reduce the amount of Ocean Plastic Waste threatening our ocean's ecosystem and marine life.

Addressing ocean plastic pollution requires a multi-faceted approach involving government policies, industry cooperation, and individual responsibility.

Corporate initiatives toward addressing ocean plastic waste have grown as awareness of the environmental impact on our oceans continues to increase. PLASTEON is helping companies find new ways to use ocean plastic to meet sustainability goals and do their part in contributing to environmental conservation.

How to overcome the struggles of using Ocean Plastics in their products?

Birch Plastics understands the need to reduce ocean waste to help protect marine life & the aquatic ecosystem by repurposing ocean-bound plastic.

Traditionally, some obstacles to using Ocean Bound Plastic (OBP) are mixed color feedstock options, insufficient amounts of natural plastic options, and poor physical properties caused by sun, contamination, and saltwater damage. Birch Plastics has developed the Ocean Bound Plastic Hybrid PLASTEON Natural HDPE to overcome these obstacles.

PLASTEON OBP Hybrid gives brand owners the best of both worlds by utilizing ocean- bound waste. It showcases the company's commitment to environmental consciousness while not compromising the physical properties and the ability to go colors while utilizing ocean-bound waste.

PLASTEON Ocean-Bound Plastic (OBP) natural injection and extrusion grades are formulated into a hybrid pellet comprised of 30% Certified Ocean Bound Plastic (OBP) and 70% virgin resin.

Benefits of using GreenCircle Certified Sustainable Post Consumer Recycled Plastic (PCR) PLASTEON PCR-HDPE

Reduced Carbon Footprint PLASTEON PCR-HDPE helps to lower greenhouse gas emissions by diverting plastic waste from landfills. According to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, PCR plastics can reduce a product's carbon footprint by up to 80%.

Water Conservation Producing Virgin High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) requires significant water. Using PLASTEON PCR-HDPE can help to conserve water resources.

Reduced Pollution, the production of virgin High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE), releases harmful pollutants into the air and water. Using PLASTEON PCR HDPE can help reduce pollution by reusing what has already been produced.

Circular Economy Using recycled plastic is a critical component of a circular economy, where products and materials are reused, recycled, and repurposed to minimize waste and maximize resource efficiency.

Positive Brand Image Using PLASTEON post-consumer recycled plastic (PCR) can enhance a company's sustainability credentials and improve its brand image by demonstrating a commitment to environmental responsibility and resource conservation.
