Placon Featured in Plastic Industry Association’s Recycling Is Real Campaign

September 15, 2023

Placon has announced its participation in the Plastic Industry Association’s (PLASTICS) latest advocacy campaign, Recycling Is Real, dedicated to illustrating and promoting plastic recycling. Recycling Is Real will provide content to help elected officials and policymakers understand that recycling is a vital link of the sustainability and circularity chain, enabling more well-informed decisions about recycling resources for their constituents. The campaign features Placon in a video to show how recycling happens, where it happens, and introduce our employees who make recycling happen at our Madison, Wisconsin facility. Placon and the plastics industry are committed to sustainability and ensuring plastic remains in the circular economy, and out of the environment—and recycling is an integral part of achieving this goal. This video shows that recycling is undeniable and it’s happening every day at Placon.
