'The city of Charlotte, NC only recycles about 2% of its post consumer plastic' - McKinsey & Co
Based in the Carolinas, we are haulers, marketers, processors, and creators. We work together to get everyone in your organization on board and address all your waste needs. While we focus on harvesting plastic, we address your paper, organic, metal, and other recyclables too— and make sure we put less and less in the landfill until we get to Zero Waste.
We started Inspired Plastics because:
We are a Precious Plastic community. www.preciousplastic.com
Our mission is to promote zero waste practices and advance the circular economy by engaging the community. By transforming locally sourced post consumer recycled plastic into inspired products we engage your customers, employees, and our local community in closing the circle.
Zero Waste consulting: We pull from our background in marketing, agile methods, user interface design, and sustainability to help organizations of all sizes and sectors to recycle better towards reaching zero waste. We offer audits, consulting sessions, and trainings to help you and your employees design and implement sustainable practices and reduce waste.
Plastic products: We collect and process plastic locally in North and South Carolina. Often, this plastic is labeled as “recyclable”, but does not get recycled and would end up in the landfill. We transform plastics into custom-made and durable products. All of our recycled plastic products are made from 100% post consumer recycled plastic. Every piece of plastic is inspected before being hand sorted and made into a unique product. Our tiles are ideal for interior design wall applications, display boards, shop interiors etc. Or you can request and order a specific item tiles, coasters, keychains, wall clocks, house number signs, etc.) through our contact form or visit our online shop (coming soon).
