Many products on the market claim to contain “recycled plastics,” yet this terminology is frequently used to include pre-consumer plastics. Pre-consumer plastics are typically clean, unused scraps or factory wastage that would be recycled by the industry regardless as part of their standard operating processes.
Post-consumer plastics, on the other hand, are materials that have served their initial purpose in the hands of consumers and are then discarded. These are the plastics that, without thoughtful intervention, could clutter our landfills and choke our oceans.
At Thinkpac, we actively clear waste from our environment by focusing on recycling these post-consumer materials.
Giving Plastic ‘Waste’
a Second Chance
We put a lot of focus on post-consumer soft plastic ‘waste’ that is destined for landfills after they’ve served their original purpose.
Our unique recycling set up is the direct lifeline for these materials from ‘waste’ to product, providing them with a route back into the economy and away from landfills. We breathe new life into the mountains of ‘waste’ at our recycling facilities, giving them ‘a second chance’.
Crafting the Landmark
Our commitment to sustainability culminates to our landmark ReCree8™ resin.
ReCree8™ resin is a 100% post-consumer recycled resin that challenges the status quo, offering a second life to plastics that have completed their initial journey.
This isn’t just any resin; it’s a symbol of the circular economy, setting a benchmark in today’s marketplace.
When you choose ReCree8™ made products, you’re not just buying a product; you’re investing in a promise for a cleaner planet.
