After years of research, Plastic Forests became the first company globally to commercialise a unique dry-cleaning process to recycle soft plastics, without using water or chemicals. Soft plastics (or plastic films) are lightweight and voluminous, and hence notoriously difficult to collect and recycle. Their contamination with organic food residues, dirt, hay etc pose an even greater challenge for recycling.
Plastic Forests’ innovative technology transforms this soft plastic waste into resin and our sustainable range of recycled GreenMongrel garden products such as garden beds, garden edging, stakes and root barrier. We also upcycle a growing range of commercial, agricultural and infrastructure products including fence posts, cable cover, dunnage and air-con mounting blocks.
Plastic Forests has been recognised for its innovation, sustainable products and contribution to the circular economy, winning a raft of awards including the NSW Green Globe Award for Innovation, the Inside Waste ‘Circular Economy Award’ and the ‘Outstanding Facility Award’.
Our goal is to ‘keep plastic as plastic, at its highest level’ and in the process make the world a better place.
