There are even more environmentally friendly methods of getting recycled plastic, and Social Plastic is one of them. The basic theory in the Social Plastic chain is based on collecting used plastic packaging materials before they enter the ocean or waterways.

Within the scope of the cooperation with Plastic Bank, Henkel took an eco-friendly decision about product packaging. Henkel will use 100 percent recycled plastic in its product packaging in the Laundry & Home Care and Beauty Care categories, and 50 percent of this recycled raw material will be Social Plastic.

Henkel has been cooperating with Plastic Bank since 2017 and conducting different joint efforts to protect nature and oceans and to prevent poverty. With the contributions of Henkel, Plastic Bank opened three new recycling facilities in Haiti, one of the poorest countries in the world. This bi-directional social project inspires new projects to be developed for better tomorrows.

In 2019, about 200 tons of Social Plastic will be processed for Henkel to use in product packaging. This means that 200 tons of plastic will not reach the ocean and waterways.

This joint work by Henkel and Plastic Bank to contribute to a better world is both a nature conservation project and a sustainable economic contribution for the people of Haiti.
