Welcome to the future of sustainable science
From benchtop to bin, and back again, Polycarbin is closing the loop on single-use scientific plastics.
Today, every piece of plastic in your lab is designed for, and treated as, a single-use consumable. Under this take-make-waste model of production, these plastics spend most of their life slowly decomposing in landfills or as air pollutants destined to bioaccumulate in living organisms.
At Polycarbin, we are ‘closing the loop’ on laboratory plastics--treating them as both an input and output commodity used to manufacture and re-manufacture products time and time again. With your help, we can create the first circular economy in the life sciences. With your help, we can make science more sustainable.
Make sure your science is more than just significant… make it sustainable.
When you use Polycarbin’s Mailback Carbin, or purchase a product from our Closed-Loop Collection, you are effectively replacing a high carbon footprint product with a low carbon footprint alternative.
In fact, 1 kilogram of recycled plastic can have a 71% lower carbon emission associated with its production than 1 kilogram of virgin material. Furthermore, every kilogram of plastic that re-enters our supply chain through recycling replaces the demand for an equivalent volume of virgin material, leaving fossil fuels underground instead of in our atmosphere.
“As a scientist, you can’t help but notice the plastic pile up. A circular solution is long over due in my profession. Hurry up.”
