What is Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) feedstock?

Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) feedstock is material recycled at its end-of-life in consumer use. Using PCR reduces the demand for virgin materials, creating environmental impact and supporting circularity.



By integrating PCR in manufacturing, businesses and brands champion sustainability efforts and appeal to eco-conscious consumers.

What makes Social Plastic feedstock different from other recycled plastic?

All Social Plastic is recycled plastic feedstock, but not all recycled plastic feedstock is Social Plastic.

Social Plastic feedstock is sourced directly from communities hand-gathering discarded plastic and exchanging it for money and social benefits, helping them pave a path out of poverty and creating environmental, social, and economic impact.
