Corporate Social Responsibility

"Plastics." What is your gut reaction to this word? You are not alone if you immediately envision plastic bags from the grocery store and disposable water bottles. While consumer throw aways are a growing thorn in our global outlook, it is essential to distinguish that EM Plastic's contribution to the industry is quite different.

Industrial plastics are utilized in essential components for industries such as aerospace, medical, and semiconductor; and "green" recycled materials are a staple in the design and graphics sector where quality and sustainability combine for non-critical end uses. For 50 years, plastic has transitioned into parts of aircraft carriers. Medical plastics and used as knee and hip replacements, improving the lives of patients every day. Bullet resistant materials protect private citizens, first responders, and military personnel around the world. Acrylic displays encase priceless museum artifacts for preservation's sake and enhance the viewer's experience.

At EM we play our responsible part in the use of plastics. The last piece of our puzzle is an industry-leading closed-loop industrial plastics recycling program, which last year recycled over 19 million pounds of plastic. At the end of its life, our plastic can be reborn into the next sheet generation to live its next 50 years forward.
