What Is the U.S. Plastics Pact?
The U.S. Plastics Pact is a collaborative effort organized by The Recycling Partnership and the World Wildlife Fund, launched as part of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s global Plastics Pact network to unify diverse public-private stakeholders across the plastics value chain to rethink the way we design, use, and reuse plastics, to create a path forward to realize a circular economy for plastic in the United States.
What is Pretium’s Role?
Pretium has joined the U.S. Plastics Pact, a collaborative, solutions-driven initiative rooted in four ambitious goals intended to drive significant systems change by unifying diverse cross-sector approaches, setting a national strategy, and creating scalable solutions to create a path forward toward a circular economy for plastics in the United States by 2025.
U.S. Plastics Pact stated goals perfectly align with Pretium’s strategy to fight the global problems of plastic waste through the elimination of both single-use packaging and non-recyclable plastic materials from our portfolio. Looking forward we are increasing our investment in our product offerings to drive more options for our customers and greater adoption of this resource. Additionally, we are committed to not contribute to the problem by focusing our efforts on processing only resins that can be commercially recycled and eliminating product lines like multi-layer containers that contaminate the recycling streams.
