Leading Recycling Firm Nexus Circular Joins the U.S. Plastics Pact

Leading Recycling Firm Nexus Circular Joins the U.S. Plastics Pact
Plastics consistently make up 80% of all marine debris studied (IUCN, 2020).
Nexus Circular, a pioneering recycling organisation at the focal point of the circular economy, has joined the U.S. Plastics Pact, a solutions focused association executing critical frameworks paving the way toward a circular economy for plastics by 2025.

The first North American Pact of its sort, the U.S. Pact is a consortium established by The Recycling Partnership and World Wildlife Fund (WWF), as part of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation's Plastics Pact Network.

Eric Hartz, President and Co-Founder of Nexus Circular said, “Nexus has developed a commercial, advanced recycling solution that is now scaling worldwide to address the accumulation of plastics in the environment. As an Activator of the U.S. Plastics Pact, we join like-minded companies seeking to dramatically increase recycling rates, accelerate the circular economy, and contribute to the ambitious goal of 30% recycled content in plastic packaging by 2025.”

“Together through the U.S. Plastics Pact, we will ignite system change to accelerate progress toward a circular economy,” said Emily Tipaldo, Executive Director of the U.S. Plastics Pact. “The U.S. Pact will mobilize support for upstream innovation and a coordinated national strategy. This unified framework will enable members to fast-track progress toward ambitious 2025 sustainability goals.”

By utilising its ingenious innovations, Nexus Circular has redirected more than 5 million pounds of used plastics from landfills to date and is on a 2030 direction to change over 4 billion pounds of hard-to-reuse plastics into endlessly circular items to help its worldwide partners achieve their sustainability targets. 

About The New Plastics Economy and The Plastics Pact

Starting around 2016, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation's New Plastics Economy drive mobilised organisations and legislatures behind a positive vision of a circular economy for plastic. The Plastics Pact is a worldwide organization that unites all vital partners at the public or provincial level to trade learnings and best practices across locales to speed up the change to a circular economy for plastic - a New Plastics Economy - in which it never becomes waste or contamination.
