Procter & Gamble Joins Plastic Film, Bag Recycling Effort

Procter & Gamble has joined the Flexible Film Recycling Group, an American Chemistry Council project that aims to drive recovery of flexible polyethylene (PE) film, wraps and bags.

Stephen Sikra, P&G research and development manager, says working with FFRG and the company’s value chain partners to expand film collection and recycling plays a key role in P&G’s goal to shrink its environmental footprint.

The recycling of postconsumer plastic film grew 11 percent in 2013 to reach a reported 1.14 billion pounds, according to a February report. This marks the highest annual collection of plastic film — a category that includes product wraps, bags and commercial stretch film made primarily from PE for recycling — since the survey began in 2005.

Founding members of the Flexible Film Recycling Group include Dow Chemical, ExxonMobil, Chevron Phillips, Berry Plastics, Wisconsin Film and Bag, Sealed Air Corporation, SC Johnson, Avangard and Trex.
