[Re] Waste was developed to achieve long term sustainability through creativity and innovation.
Established in 2020, [Re] Waste began as a pilot project for the City of Beaumont, and has quickly grown to expand into other municipalities and industries.
[Re] Waste began by taking single use grocery bags and melting them down using a kitchen griddle and clothing iron for proof of concept. We quickly learned how durable recycled plastic could be as we evolved from using household items to make our recycled plastic flakes to larger scale manufacturing.
We have built strong relationships with local businesses as well as industry leaders in the beauty, food, and cannabis industries.
By meeting and working with people from so many different sectors, we have been encouraged to continue on our quest to reduce plastic. We have seen first hand the thousands of possible products we can create with recycled plastic, and are inspired to continue searching for innovative new ways to collect and divert plastic waste from landfills into a usable product.
