APC Joins Circular Great Lakes to Actively Combat Plastic Waste and Pollution
Chili, NY, April 9, 2021 — American Packaging Corporation (APC) today announced it has joined Circular Great Lakes as a corporate activation partner, a regional initiative led by the Council of the Great Lakes Region (CGLR). Through the initiative, APC and other partners will work closely with CGLR to define a strategy that paves the way to a zero plastic waste economy in the binational Great Lakes region.
“The Great Lakes region is near and dear to APC, as four of our locations are within close proximately to the lakes,” APC Director of Corporate Purchasing Jeff Huber said. “This local initiative closely aligns with our core values and commitment to sustainability, enabling us to share ideas and recommendations on how to better support the environment by moving from single-use and disposal to formats that can be collected and reused.”
Circular Great Lakes will work with partners to develop a circular economy strategy for plastics in the region, setting the stage for targeted actions and partnerships over the next five years. The initiative’s priorities include driving systemic changes necessary to close the loop for plastics in the region, shifting away from a linear take-make-dispose economy and materials management mindset.
