The European Association of Plastics Recycling & Recovery Organisations (EPRO) is inviting companies across Europe to enter their products and designs for products made from recycled plastics to enter for European recognition.

This also recognises the progression in the applications of recycled plastics, and presents a real opportunity for the industry to further demonstrate commitment to the environment and saving resources through use of recycled materials.

Stuart Foster, CEO of RECOUP, said “raising awareness of the products made from recycled plastics helps stimulate demand and appetite for the design and manufacture more products made from recycled plastic and to encourage new entrants into the market place. We recognise the importance of awards such as this to inform and educate the public of advances currently being made in this arena.”

Entries to the competition close on 10th October 2016 and there is no cost to enter. Winners from the short-listed entries will be chosen at Identi-plast 2017, due to take place in Austria 22nd and 23rd February 2017. This competition enables the industry to further demonstrate their commitment and work in the area of Corporate Social Responsibility, and for the consumer to more fully understand the scope of their environmentally friendly actions.

Peter Sundt, Secretary General of EPRO said, “It is important that consumers and industry see the development in the recycling of plastics. We see this award as being a vehicle to showcase the innovation within plastics recycling and the many products that are currently being manufactured across Europe”.
