The Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) has unveiled a new video as part of its Recycling is Real advocacy campaign. This new video highlights the recycling efforts taking place at Niagara Bottling at the company's plant in Rialto, California. The Recycling is Real campaign has featured Ultra-Poly, Placon, Novolex, MAAG, and Amcor.

"Plastic recycling is very real, and it happens every single day in California, and across America," said PLASTICS' President and CEO Matt Seaholm. "The Recycling is Real campaign will continue to show the public and lawmakers that recycling is undeniable, and is a feasible and economical way to achieve a more circular economy."

The Recycling is Real campaign will provide content to help elected officials and policymakers understand that recycling is a vital link in the sustainability and circularity chain, enabling them to make more well-informed decisions about recycling resources for their constituents.

The campaign has also been created in an effort to put an end to false narratives claiming that recycling doesn't happen or is a myth. PLASTICS says that recycling has come under attack from those who wish to reduce or eliminate the production of plastic altogether. The Recycling is Real campaign will show how recycling happens, where it happens, and introduce the people who make it happen.

In this video at Niagara Bottling, PLASTICS shows the manufacturing and recycling proccess of plastic bottles. Niagara uses recycled plastic in its manufacturing process. The Recycling is Real video highlights the amount of plastic Niagara Bottling uses in its operations as well as the effort Niagara goes through to keep plastic and waste out of landfills.
