We are currently working on post-consumer metalized multi-layered plastic packaging (MLP). MLP is the least recycled type of plastic waste, and generally ends up in landfills. It is a low-value, high volume, composite waste (upto 5-6 different types of materials) that is considered economically and technically “impossible” to recycle.
We are recycling this waste into high-quality materials and products, starting first with recycled sunglasses. We are not fully there yet, but we are getting closer.
We want to eventually work on all types of waste, but we have got to start somewhere. Plastic waste is generally high-value and nimble, so it made sense for us to start there.
