About Re|focus

What sets Re|focus apart?

Did you know the plastics industry is the 3rd largest manufacturing industry in the U.S., employing over 900,000 employees and producing almost $418 billion in goods on an annual basis? Imagine if recycled plastics were a key feedstock for manufacturing, innovation and sustainability across all industry segments, not just packaging. The potential to increase the use of recycled plastics in manufacturing, engineering, and technology – throughout the supply chain – is enormous. The Re|focus Sustainability & Recycling Summit will challenge the entire plastics supply chain to “redefine” product design, manufacturing and engineering with an eye toward promoting the use of recycled content, selecting materials designed for recycling and focusing on driving sustainability in manufacturing and technology.

The Re|focus Sustainability & Recycling Summit will challenge brand owners, processors, engineers, product developers and the entire supply chain to “refocus” on product design, technology and manufacturing with an eye toward recycled and sustainable content, design for recycling and driving sustainability. With Re|focus, we are moving the recycling and sustainability conversation into new territory, and we hope you will join us in this ground breaking event.

It is also important to note that all funds generated from the Re|focus Sustainability & Recycling Summit will be reinvested into expanding plastics recovery efforts for the industry.

Re|focus is an entirely new approach to manufacturing with a priority on recycling, and we invite you to join us and Re|focus!
