Led by The Recycling Partnership and World Wildlife Fund in partnership with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, the U.S. Plastics Pact will unify and rethink the way we design, use, and reuse plastics.
Our team at INDEED Innovation is proud to announce that we have joined the U.S. Plastics Pact. This significant collaboration brings together over 120+ companies, including ours, to continue facilitating the circular journey for plastic packaging in the United States.
The U.S. Plastics Pact has a mission to transform the plastic packaging industry from one of waste to one of innovation. This initiative brings together various stakeholders across the entire plastics value chain, aiming to initiate a profound paradigm shift by rethinking and innovating the life cycle of materials. The ultimate goal is to help close the loop on plastics and facilitate the transition to a circular economy for plastic packaging in the United States.
“This is an exciting step in our journey towards a circular economy for plastics in the United States, one that keeps plastic in the economy and out of the environment,” says Sarah Crooks our Managing Director in North America.
“This effort will not only help to create solutions in the U.S., but across the world, as part of our global network of Plastics Pacts. We are looking forward to working with all those involved to drive real change, by eliminating problematic and unnecessary plastic items, innovating to ensure all plastic packaging is reusable, recyclable, or compostable, and circulating it in practice. We encourage others to join us on this journey towards a United States free of plastic waste and pollution.”
