Post Consumer Recycled (PCR)

PCR is now available!

American Plastic is committed to doing our part in fighting climate change by providing environmentally sustainable products and encouraging the reuse and recycling of plastics. To help with that effort, we are now offering bags made with Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) material

We have been offering recycled content for years, mainly made from our own production waste, but resin made from consumer recycled plastics had been hard to come by. But in the past few years PCR production has ramped up and become more readily available. 

Laws regulating the usage of single use plastic checkout bags are starting to recognize the importance of including recycled material in reusable bags. Washington State, for instance, requires bags have a minimum of 40% postconsumer resin.  

Recycling and reusing plastics are key to protecting the environment. Let us know if you would like more information or samples to show your customers. 

Currently available only in LDPE.
