Join the Brightmark Challenge

Brightmark is making our mark with our revolutionary plastics renewal solution — a truly circular approach that turns commingled plastics back into wax and oil that can be reused as anything from transportation fuel to new plastic.

But it takes all of us to fight climate change — in every city, state, and nation. That’s why we’re calling on you to take The Brightmark Challenge.

Every year, Americans dump over
27 million tons of plastic into landfills.**
