The Plastic Problem

Plastic production has outpaced our ability to recycle it.

Plastic is Popular

Since the 1950s, plastic production has increased exponentially. Plastic is easy to produce in bulk, inexpensive, versatile, and extremely durable. It is used to build cars, planes, computers, bridges, homes and so many of the products we use every day. Strength and durability, the reasons we depend on plastic, are the same attributes that make plastic difficult to decompose.

The amount of plastic produced each year is greater than the weight of 2,500,000 blue whales, the world's largest animal.

Plastic packaging, bags and beverage containers are the largest contributors to single use plastic waste pollution.

In the US, much of our drinking water contains microplastics and comes from sources polluted by mismanaged plastic waste.

What Now?

Plastic production has increased substantially over the past ten years. Plastic waste disposal and collection methods have improved, but it is our recycling technology that will make the largest impact on our effort to protect the ecosystem.

The World Deserves a Global Solution

The World Deserves a Global Solution

We share oceans, cities, small towns, rain forests, deserts and mountain ranges. We also share the responsibility to protect them. Mobilizing our state-of-the-art infrastructure, we recycle plastic waste once destined for landfills and create a circular pathway for global plastic reuse.

Our Plan

At Freepoint's recycling facilities, we will increase the recycling rate of global plastic waste. We will reduce the flow of plastic debris to our oceans and environment while decreasing carbon emissions created through new plastic production.

Learn more about how we can help you recycle your plastic waste.


The path is clear: our technology recycles more types of plastic waste than ever before, reduces pollution and increases the amount of recycled plastic material used to manufacture new products.

Work with Freepoint

Global demand for plastic will endure. Creating efficient recycling pathways for plastic waste is critical. Join us on this mission to protect our ecosystem while building a successful circular plastic economy.

  • Coordinate efforts with local trash collectors to decrease delivery of plastic waste to landfills
  • Encourage recycling procedures in schools, businesses and homes
  • Educate and promote recycling through social media and share metrics of success
  • Collaborate with municipalities to create efficient collection plans
  • Set goals and report on recycling achievements to increase participation
  • Share knowledge of equipment and practices
  • Install centralized and clearly labeled recycling bins
  • Conduct waste audits and share results with employees
  • Educate and remind employees of best recycling practices

Ask us even the smallest questions. They could be the first steps to the biggest changes.
