Meet Your (Re)Maker
A staggering 91% of all plastic products do not get recycled and end up incinerated in landfills or as litter in the natural environment, where it will sit for thousands of years. Post-use plastics end up choking waterways, harming vulnerable ecosystems, and often can even end up in our bodies in the form of microplastics.
With our first-of-its-kind plastics renewal facility in Ashley, Indiana, we’re here to change that. We’re creating circular solutions to waste, drastically reducing the negative impacts of plastic waste and production—all while working to protect the environment and the planet we all share.
We get it; plastic can be confusing. That’s why we gladly welcome Jude, a seven-year-old boy from Ashley, Indiana, wanting to see (and create) a better future. Watch our video below to get a more simple grasp on how our plastics renewal process works—all from the perspective of a seven-year-old boy.
“We are able to accept all types of plastic that are co-mingled. It might not sound like a big deal, but it’s a game-changer.”
– Rick Peterson // Chief Technology Officer
Helping the Environment
How Can You Make an Impact?
By 2050, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. This statistic is a wake-up call for us. It’s high time for us to change our habits and behaviors so that future generations can live in a clean, beautiful world. A world filled with wonder, excitement, and fish in the sea.
Plastic pollution. Plastic solution. We're creating a circular process to plastic waste.
At Brightmark, we like to think of ourselves as "Earth's Cleanup Crew," taking the waste out of nature and turning it into something good that benefits humanity. We recycle all plastic types 1-7, unlock their value, and create new products. We are the only company on Earth that can take all plastic types 1-7 and then provide real solutions. We've built the largest advanced plastics recycling facility in Ashley, Indiana—and we're just getting started. Here's a glimpse of how our technology works:
We recycle it all.
Our proprietary plastic technology is designed to take a continuous mixed stream of all types of plastic waste.
This is a game-changer.
At the intersection of sustainability and state-of-the-art technology is where you can find our project sites. All facilities are built with our planet top of mind.
We build in the environment, not on it.
