  • Facing key issues as a united industry is always more effective. Increasing recycling capabilities and addressing unfair bans and/or taxes on plastic bags, to name just two initiatives, have more than paid for our membership.

WHY PLASTICS?

Plastics make much of modern life possible; they make our lives easier; they protect us and those who protect us; they keep us from harm; they conserve our resources. Plastics have revolutionized almost every aspect of our lives – from how we grow our food, heat our homes, communicate with each other, to the clothes we wear, the cars we drive, the packaged foods we purchase, and how we receive medical care.
