The example of millions of PET bottles, HDPE bottles and PP caps whose raw materials come from the Yellow Bag waste collection shows how a true circular economy works. more
In innovative mechanical recycling or upcycling of used plastic from the previously untapped source of the Yellow Bag, We for Recyclates sees the most effective, energy-efficient way to put plastic packaging into a closed cycle. Because the plastic is kept there, it no longer ends up in a climate-damaging incinerator or somewhere in the ocean. Hundreds of millions of packaging units brought to market by the Recyclate Initiative have set a world record and provided practical proof of a realistic solution to the plastic waste problem.
Several industry awards, recognition in media reports, and consumer trust in products packaged in 100 percent used plastic motivate Recyclate Initiative partners to continue unwaveringly on the right path. Even though the giant corporations show no willingness to give material from the Yellow Bag a chance. . . . anyone who wants to get involved is welcome to join the open Recyclate Initiative.
