Cyclyx welcomes Suncast as consortium’s newest member and early retail adopter of advancing circular solutions
PORTSMOUTH, New Hampshire, USA, March 9, 2022 – Cyclyx International, a consortium-based supply chain innovation company with a mission to help increase the recycling rate of plastic from 10% to 90%, has welcomed Suncast, the market-leading manufacturer of high-quality resin products made in the U.S.A., to its consortium.
Retailers and consumers know Suncast for its smart and innovative home and garden and storage products. By developing products that incorporate recycled content and can be recycled at their end-of-life, Suncast Corporation is committed to a brighter, more brilliant future.
“Zero waste and recycled content are key components of our Brilliant by Design™ sustainability platform,” stated Jim Ahlborn, CEO of Suncast. “Cyclyx is doing the difficult work of diverting plastics from landfills to use as feedstocks in advanced recycling so that companies like ours can use recycled content in our products. By working with Cyclyx and our retail partners, we’ll be able to implement first-of-their-kind takeback programs so fewer products end up in landfills at the end of their useful lives, and we’ll collaborate with companies that can help us source even more recycled content for our products.”
Suncast’s membership in Cyclyx gives it access to design and implement customized takeback programs and innovations, including plastic waste-based circular feedstock specifications tailored to its specific product pathways, allowing for the inclusion of higher amounts of recycled content in its products.
“We are happy to welcome Suncast to the Cyclyx consortium,” stated Joe Vaillancourt, CEO of Cyclyx. “Suncast’s focus on sustainability and enthusiasm for advancing circular solutions will help us to direct more plastic waste toward its best use and will be a great bolster to our effort to help drive the recycling rate of plastic from 10% to 90%.”
