Bottle-to-bottle Recycler Tackles Ocean | BLOG Certified
By Ryan Johnson CarbonLITE is launching a new category of PET plastic—100 percent post-consumer, ocean-diverted plastic. As part of its closed loop philosophy, CarbonLITE Industries, a global recycler and producer of post-consumer polyethylene terephthalate plastic (PET), is launching a new category: 100 percent post-consumer, ocean-diverted plastic. CarbonLITE's newest offering will replace virgin materials for food, beverage and cosmetic applications. These products will have the dual benefit of reducing ocean plastics and the amount of virgin material produced, according to the company. "Plastic pollution in the ocean is impacting animal health and our food chain and must be urgently addressed. Our team worked diligently with experts to source and provide a statistically meaningful supply of certified ocean-diverted plastic, so our customers can be part of the solution," said Jason Farahnik, director of brand partnerships and resin sales at CarbonLITE, in a statement.
