One international contest, two awards: best designed product and best realised product. Contest entry open until October 10th.
What are the best recycled plastic products? The decision is up to Best Recycled Plastic Product Award, an international contest promoted by EPRO, the European Association of Plastics Recycling and Recovery Organisations (one of which is the Italian consortium Corepla).
Registrations for the 2017 edition are currently open. There will be two awards, one for the best project and one for the best realisation of a recycled plastic object. The application deadline is October 10th 2016.
This competition – reads the website of the initiative – will enable the industry to further demonstrate their commitment and work in the area of Corporate Social Responsibility. It will also help consumers to better understand the scope of their environmentally friendly actions. The contest is supported by PlasticsEurope, ACR+, EUPR and EUPC- Its aims are to raise awareness on the value and versatility of post-consumption and post-industrial plastic packaging; to promote plastic recycling opportunities; and to bring to light the value of recycled plastic as a resource and not as waste. Enterprises will have the chance to showcase their most innovative recycled plastic products.
The finalists will be announced in November, while the award ceremony will take place on occasion of the XIII Identiplast Conference in Vienna, February 22nd-23rd 2017.
