About Social Plastic™
Social Plastic is reprocessed ocean-bound plastic feedstock that is transformed and reintroduced into the global supply chain, demonstrating environmental, social, and economic impact.
Social Plastic feedstock is available in PET, LDPE, HDPE material types, and is offered in bale, flake, or pellet form.
Social Plastic™ in the Global Economy
SC Johnson entered into a Founding Partnership with Plastic Bank in 2018 focused on creating regenerative impact in Indonesia, the Philippines, and Brazil. Together, we are preventing over 1.5 billion plastic bottles from entering the ocean over 3 years by integrating Social Plastic feedstock into the packaging of SC Johnson’s brands. These include the Windex® and Mr. Muscle brands which have both launched packaging made with Social Plastic from Plastic Bank.
Henkel was the first major global consumer goods company to collaborate with Plastic Bank in 2017. Henkel’s consumer business units in Laundry & Home Care and Beauty Care have launched product packaging made with Social Plastic feedstock. These include Pro Nature cleaning products under the Biff, Pril, and Sidolin brands, fabric finisher Vernel Fresh Control, and beauty brands Nature Box and Fa. Since entering a Founding Partnership with Plastic Bank in 2018, Henkel has helped to collect over 5,000,000 kg of plastic waste – equivalent to 265 million plastic bottles. In 2021, Henkel expanded its partnership with Plastic Bank through the expansion of recycling ecosystems into Egypt, including an additional commitment to collect 5,000,000 kg.
Carton Pack is the first and only fruit and vegetable manufacturer in Europe to offer packaging made with 100% Social Plastic feedstock. Carton Pack’s decisive action towards sustainability aims to add value to recycled plastic packaging while supporting a circular economy. Since entering into a partnership with Plastic Bank in 2020, Carton Pack has already stopped over 440,000 kilograms of plastic from entering the ocean – the equivalent of more than 22 million plastic bottles.
