Sustainability is not new for Polymer Industries; it is a core value, something the company has practiced for more than 45 years. They began recycling internally and, later, when their products reached end of life, those products were brought back from customers. Polymer Industries strives to provide a circular economy to do what is right for the environment. The 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 products 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. They have invested in products and practices to further substantiate their commitment to

Following their commitment to do what is right for the environment, in 2019 Polymer Industries announced their ability 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, Densetec® OceanBound, a product for essentially any application where HDPE is preferred, was created.

“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 reclaimed our first million pounds of OceanBound waste in 2020 with a goal of 10 million pounds in the future.”
