News from the Foundation
Welcome to the first edition of News from the Foundation, a quarterly e-newsletter from the Foundation for Plastic Recycling, the philanthropic arm of the Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR).
Our Mission
The Foundation for Plastic Recycling's mission is to enhance and expand plastics recycling through education, research, technical assistance and innovation to address the role of plastics in the Circular Economy. Now more than ever, we need to tell our story about the societal, economic and environmental benefits of recycling while continuing to develop technologies and innovations that support plastics recycling. Governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, the Foundation will make a lasting impact through our unique commitment to support plastics recycling.
Areas of Focus
The Foundation's initial areas of focus will address:

  • Conducting educational initiatives to expand the understanding of plastics recycling and provide technical training and resources.
  • Investing in research and programs to extend technology innovations to advance plastics recycling.
  • Delivering global solutions in the harmonization of design for recycling standards and testing protocols.
