Unlocking Environmental and Economic Benefits of PET Recycling Through Facility Grants

It is simply wrong to suggest our recent PET Recycling grants export plastic pollution to Mexico.

100% of PET thermoforms sent to the granted facility in Mexico are processed to be used in new products and packaging. And, the same is overwhelmingly true for other PET thermoform recyclers in North America, the vast majority of which are in the U.S. and Canada. By partnering with a proven recycling facility already transforming a very recyclable material into new products and packaging we use every day, we are keeping valuable materials out of landfills while unlocking environmental and economic benefits such as reducing greenhouse gas emissions and creating jobs.
