For more than 45 years, Polymer Industries has recycled the products they put into the environment. They began recycling internally and, later, when their products reached end of life, they brought them back from customers. They strive to provide a circular economy to do what is right for the environment. Their ReCycle Buy Back program was created to assist customers with their own recycling efforts. Now, Polymer Industries is going a step further, by taking back additional products, those that were not manufactured by them. They are serious about their commitment to recover, recycle and reuse plastic products to better care for the environment and reduce landfill waste. Sustainability is another one of the company’s core values and what they practice on a daily basis. They have invested in products and practices to further substantiate their commitment to sustainability.

In 2019, Polymer Industries announced their efforts to produce products made from ocean bound waste. This ocean bound plastic comes from communities that lack established waste management systems and captures waste plastic at risk of polluting the waterways that lead to the ocean. By focusing on the future of the environment, they created Densetec® OceanBound, a product for essentially any application where HDPE is preferred.

“We strive to recycle 100 percent of the products we manufacture at the end of life to do our part for the environment,” said Rohit Saigal, vice president of sales and marketing. “We want to be pioneers in the use of sustainable materials. It is imperative to our customers and to our industry that our products are in line with our mission, to protect the environment for our future. We are helping to prevent plastic from reaching the ocean and doing our part to close the loop on post-consumer materials. Every pound of OceanBound is potential pollution turned into a recyclable material. We are on track for reclaiming our first million pounds of OceanBound waste in 2020 with a goal of 10 million pounds in the future.”
