PLASTICS Introduces New Recycling is Real Video

The Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) has introduced its newest Recycling is Real video, part of its Recycling is Real initiative.

According to PLASTICS, the video shows that it is possible for plastic materials to stay in the economy and out of the environment, giving plastic products another life – often more than once.

The purpose of the initiative is to provide content to help elected officials and policymakers understand that recycling is a vital link of the sustainability and circularity chain, enabling them to make more well-informed decisions about recycling resources for their constituents. PLASTICS said the campaign also has been created in an effort to put an end to false narratives claiming that recycling doesn’t happen or is a “myth.” Anti-recycling organizations and their allies have created a coordinated campaign against plastic recycling in an effort to advance their anti-plastics agenda and it is eroding faith in our nation’s ability to recycle.
