Placon is a leading designer and manufacturer of plastic packaging and the first thermoforming company to open an on-site PET recycling center where they produce their EcoStar® post-consumer recycled PET material.

Placon has been using recycled PET since the early 90’s with key retail partners. In 2011, they introduced EcoStar® material that is made from 75% or more, post-consumer recycled PET.

They purchase post-consumer recycled PET bottles and thermoforms from material recovery facilities (MRF’s) to help keep over 1 billion PET bottles from going to the landfills each year. By diverting these bottles from landfills, Placon is able to close the loop and create sustainable results.
