At GearedforGreen, we truly believe “less is more”. Less is core to our culture. Less plastic waste.. less virgin plastic to make products.. less energy, less carbon footprint, less packaging, less.. less.. less.
“Less” says a lot about our own modus operandi. Less about how many clients.. more about how we help each client maximize their plastics sustainability.
That’s why when it comes to our clients, we don’t go wide… WE GO DEEP.
When it comes to your plastic recycling we don’t just focus on price per pound… we go even deeper implementing initiatives that add increased economic and environmental “value”. We don’t just focus on recycling the standard grades of thermoplastics you generate as waste… We focus on recycling your hardest most challenging plastics too… the plastics that are contaminated and coated and multi layered.. or mixed commingled and assorted.. to help you get to absolute ZERO plastic waste. We create circular eco supply chains, including close loop and open loop partnerships. We recycle industrial plastics generated at your facilities and consumer plastics generated after use. We don’t just solve your pain points.. we uncover valuable opportunity.
When it comes to your plastic raw material needs we focus on supplying quality cost effective “certified recycled” plastic resins made to your exact specifications.. but we go deeper. We don’t just sell resin.. we make it! Having more than 20 years of hands on manufacturing expertise operating a wide range of tools, we also focus on your manufacturing efficiency, helping you continually lower your total cost of manufacturing, de-risk raw material purchases, reuse more of your own internal plastic waste, and use greater amounts of recycled plastics instead of virgin. We operate our own in house 24/7 plastics lab, and test every box before delivery. We ship in boxes, bags, and bulk and have rail onsite. We supply FDA approved resins, and for those manufacturers looking to make a social impact, we supply ocean and beach collected plastic resins too.
When it comes to your plastic packaging even coated food packaging, there’s a lot of value still left to recover. Solving the Single Use Plastic Packaging Waste Issue is perhaps the Single Biggest Opportunity for Plastics Manufacturers to be Sustainable! So we go deeper using patented proprietary technologies to recycle some of the most challenging plastic packaging materials in your waste stream, turning your laminated, coated, heavily printed, multi layered plastic packaging back to clean near virgin and FDA quality.
• We recycle PET, PP, HIPS, PE packaging and more… We provide close loop toll reuse to help you preserve your scrap value – by removing print, laminates, coatings from your plastic packaging, bringing your material back to clear near prime quality without adding a heat history, without negatively affecting physical properties, and without removing any internal additives from your plastic.
• We provide open loop recycling markets for your plastic packaging waste, connecting you with other manufacturers in our eco supply chain that recycle your packaging for their own reuse after we’ve cleaned it up.
• We implement packaging reuse programs that provide even greater economic value with less carbon footprint beyond recycling. Our GearedforGreen Eco Supply Chain is the largest network in North America for reused Corrugated Boxes of all sizes, Gaylord Boxes, Plastic Shipping Containers, Plastic Pallets, and FIBC Bulk Bags. We also provide close loop packaging refurbishment services for FIBC bulk bags and plastic shipping containers to clean up your used packaging for your own internal reuse.
• We engineer & optimize your plastic and corrugated packaging to “design out” waste so you can package your products using less material and with lower delivery cost.
And when it comes to industrial products you use in your own everyday operations we don’t overlook the importance of helping you “walk your sustainability walk”. We provide a range of American Made Certified Sustainable industrial plastic products .. all made from recycled plastics, including pallets & shipping containers, trash cans & can liners, recycling bins, and corporate branded promotional products and corporate logo uniforms and apparel made with the newest technical fabrics from 100% recycled plastic.
With 25+ years of plastic recycling, sustainability and circular supply chain expertise.. “Less” is something we are very passionate about!
So whether it’s plastic recycling, zero waste management, sustainable raw material, packaging, sustainable products, certified destruction, product reuse markets, LCA life cycle analysis, circular eco supply chains, co-manufacturing, regional warehousing & distribution, sustainable social partnerships, eco brand communication, strategic partnerships, and more… we go deeper to help you USE LESS to be as sustainable as you want to be.

Ubiquitous.. plastic makes so many things better .. yet there’s a stain on our lovely earths skin.
Hopelessly wasted in our lands and oceans …where do we begin?
So much promise to help mankind … Yet left without purpose, to lay blind till end of time.
It’s greatest strength is it’s deepest worry… Villainized by stagnation, with no future of glory.
Like so many, looked upon in two distinctly different lights…
Waste in the one hand, resource the other, both in the fight.
But for imagination and vision, bolder paths begin…
Innovators with an eye on tomorrow, rolling up sleeves to dig in.
Prepared for its journey, delivered baled over roads …
Received with purpose, guided by a triangle and recycling codes.
Into the grinder, reduced in size to travel its way… into the bath, contaminates away.
400 degrees, rotating down the screw and out the screen…
Purified like saints, engineered to accomplish its dream.
Packaged into boxes, pellets stacked twelve hundred pounds high…
Full of potential towards its nextlife, it’s virtue ready to be realized.
By way of circular travel, imagination sustained …
Molded back with purpose, touching each link of the chain.
Proudly made good as new, better actually…
Carrying the promise of our children, achieving its destiny.

It’s an exciting time to be in the Plastics Recycling Equipment Business. For innovative equipment dealers and process developers, there’s more opportunity than ever…if you are willing to grow outside of the box.
Today’s plastics sustainability climate is ripe with innovation. Along with growing pressure from environmental organizations and within our plastics industry itself, there are mounting initiatives all across North America driving plastics recycling growth.
Eco supply chains are connecting Brands and Plastics Manufacturers with Waste Collectors, Plastic Recycling firms and Sustainable Raw Material suppliers, to create transparent connected Closed Loop supply chains. It isnt a passing fad. Circular Supply Chains are increasingly becoming the norm across our plastics industry and in many other industry sectors globally. Companies are working collaboratively across the supply chain to their own benefit but this collaboration is also driving growth, profitability, and innovation that benefits our entire plastics industry.
Eco supply chains are also creating significant opportunities for new and used equipment dealers that know where to find used equipment and have access and expertise in plastics recycling equipment, especially used recycling equipment. There is tremendous value having used plastic recycling equipment expetise!
Traditionally dealers buy and sell used plastic recycling equipment, and benefit on the profit margins they earn on (one time sales). The more one time sales they produce, the more annual revenue created.
Today dealers are also connecting in eco supply chains and leveraging their expertise and resources to create (ongoing long term revenue).
As example, an innovative growing plastic recycling firm developed proprietary technologies to recycle challenging “hard to recycle” plastic waste. They plan to scale their business to 100 million pounds annual plastic recycling. This innovation offers substantial growth opportunity! The innovative plastic recycling firm already owns and has the core equipment and technology in operation, however in order to scale to 100m, they need to add ancillary equipment over time such as grinders, shredders, metal separation, conveyors, wash tanks, silos, etc. This used equipment is out there and available in the market, often sitting idle or in inventory, and equipment dealers have the expertise to get it.
The challenge.. How does innovative plastic recycling firm add this ancillary equipment and at the same time manage their financial resources when they are starting out?
The answer.. Connecting in an eco supply chain whereby used equipment dealers provide the ancillary equipment “in partnership” with innovative plastic recycling firms and share the revenue of the business together.
This eco supply chain approach benefits everyone in the supply chain. Used equipment doesn’t sit idle waiting for a sale. Dealers leverage their expertise and resources for a piece of the action. Innovative plastics recycling firms gain access to much needed ancillary equipment without having to put up money. Equipment dealers earn ongoing revenue beyond the value of the used equipment. By connecting in an eco supply chain, equipment dealers and innovative plastic recycling firms (de-risk) together. Partners in an eco supply chain share revenue. Plastic recycling rates climb.
