#FollowTheTrash: Believe it or not, this is about 3 million pounds of car seats ready for recycling! Each tower weighs approx. 2,850 lbs. Keep going to #FollowTheTrash.
Up Close & Personal: To get car seats ready for recycling, they are compressed just like cars in a junkyard. Each tower weighs 2,850 pounds which is nearly 29 grand pianos!
Ecotech Innovation: When we are ready to turn plastics into our Ecotech™ FullCircle resins, we process them through our custom engineered machinery.
Pretty Mess: After grinding up the hard plastic recyclable materials, we filter out the resources we can use from the materials we can't. We try to send materials we can't recycle to others who can.
RCS Certified: Ecotech™ recycles hard plastics categorized by 2, 5, and 7 and is Recycled Claim Standard (RCS) certified. Plastic flakes, seen here, can all be traced back to their car seat roots.
Made Fresh Daily: These black strands are freshly extruded resin noodles that are cooling, getting a cold water bath, and on their way to becoming Ecotech™ FullCircle resin pellets.
Ecotech™ FullCircle: Resin pellets are about to be turned into new products. We can tell you what this resin came from even in this state. That is the beauty of our RCS certification.
The first fully recyclable cooler! This Ecotech™ FullCircle cooler comes from our resin, and after a good, long life, it can be recycled and turned back into new resin. The ultimate in upcycling!
