With the belief that demand-driven change can rescue plastic from landfills, oceans and incinerators, The Good Plastic Company looks to continue the momentum as it enters the North America market.

Dr. Chizhovsky commented:

We began five years ago in Europe by developing proprietary, cutting-edge equipment that not only creates demand for fully circular material through practical and distinctive products but also scales up its utilization for greater impact. By investing heavily in research and development, and orienting ourselves as an impact-driven company in every aspect of our business, we were able to pioneer a material that serves as a catalyst for the circular economy. As we continue to grow, we are excited to offer businesses, specifiers, and consumers in North America access to a truly sustainable and aesthetically pleasing surfacing solution that aligns with their commitment to environmental responsibility.

Available from stock or custom made to order, Polygood provides flexibility for various design applications. It stands out in the market with its Cradle to Cradle Bronze certification and Environmental Product Declaration, preventing the emission of more than three tons of CO2 for every ton of material produced compared to virgin material production.
